No Boundary Fence — Gender Equality in Regional, Rural and Remote Australia

Powerhouse Theatre

In Australia, the term ‘remote living’ conjures up images of vast red plains, dense rainforests, wide horizons, endless seas and skies — full of adventure and possibility for all comers. What is life really like for the women and girls who live outside our major cities? Join Federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins and women from regional, remote and rural Australia to hear about the challenges for women and girls in their worlds, and how they are taking down the boundary fences. Participants will include pastoralist and connector of communities in the Bush Maree Morton, Mayor of Torres Shire Council Vonda Malone, from Bundaberg Curator Trudie Leigo, and the session will be facilitated by ABC Regional Editor for Queensland Cathie Schnitzerling.
