Refusing to be Silenced

Rooftop Terrace

Women take an active part in conflict everywhere — in combat roles, providing medical support, reporting on conflict as journalists and photographers, as negotiators and peacekeepers — and in a thousand other ways. This session introduces some women who are in the thick of it globally, including the founder of the platform RAW — Reach All women in War Mariana Katzarova, one of the winners of this year’s Anna Politskovskaya award, activist Gulalai Ismail from Pakistan, Mary Kini co-founder of Kup Women for Peace in PNG and leading Fijian activist Sharon Bhagwan Rolls from femLINKpacific. The session will be facilitated by ABC Radio Brisbane presenter Emma Griffiths
