Please note: This is an online event.
Empowering Women is the uplifting behind-the-scenes story of how the murder of a man catalysed one abortion-providing clinic’s fight to protect women from religious extremists. An army of women responded and forced Parliament to enact a women-centred law that ultimately saw a 2019 landmark High Court decision enshrine Australian women’s entitlement to reproductive autonomy and respect. Empowering Women gives you a front row seat in the courtroom and takes you behind closed doors into the personal, legal and political twists and turns of this long campaign. Interwoven with Susie Allanson’s personal narrative are insights from key protagonists, primary source material, and crucial lessons for anyone wanting to change the law or redesign the world for the better.
Fiona Patten MP and Leader of the Reason Party has agreed to be available for the panel discussion with authors Dr Susie Allanson, Lizzie O’Shea and Gideon Haigh.
