Gabrielle Jackson in conversation with Van Badham
Readings Carlton — 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053
In 2015, The Guardian journalist Gabrielle Jackson told her editor she wanted to write about endometriosis. It turned into a world-wide investigation into the disease, in which thousands of women got in touch to tell their own story. This was the catalyst for Gabrielle thinking more widely about women’s pain and how it is viewed and treated by the medical profession and the wider society. In a potent blend of personal memoir and polemic, Jackson confronts the private concerns and questions women face regarding their health and medical treatment. Pain and Prejudice, finally, explains how we got here, and where we need to go next.
Gabrielle Jackson will be in conversation with writer and commentator Van Badham. This event is free, but please book here.
