Annabel Crabb in conversation with Virginia Trioli
Melbourne Athenaeum, 188 Collins St, Melbourne CBD
We are thrilled to be hosting the celebration of the Quarterly Essay 75 at the Melbourne Athenaeum with Annabel Crabb. As the author of the QE 75, Crabb’s essay on politics, work and gender deploys political observation, workplace research and her characteristic humour to argue that gender equity cannot be achieved until men are as free to leave the workplace (when their lives demand it) as women are to enter it. In the last half-century, women have revolutionised the way we work and live. But men’s lives have changed remarkably little in that time. Join Crabb for a conversation with journalist Virginia Trioli in which she will ask why this is the case, and what we can do about it.
Tickets are $45 per person and include a copy of Quarterly Essay 75: Men at Work: Australia’s Parenthood Trap. Bookings are essential, please click here.
