Necessary ... and oddly uplifting
I chased up this podcast after hearing one of the presenters on an ABC RN program one evening. I am a woman, a feminist, a researcher of gender equity ... and yet, I was admittedly hesitant to tune in out of a sense of self-preservation (a bit like, I see this 'stuff' playing out at work every day [in a university where sexism is rife, but shouldn't be], so do I really want to head back into the trenches in my time off?). Gladly, I did venture into the world of Witch Hunt and I have to say, the conversation is clear, well-researched, reflexive (in that you seek out multiple standpoints and actively endeavour to make space for marginalised voices) and strangely buoying. Thank you for this ... Now make more eps ;)
Great work on Sexual Harassment from an Australian Perspective
Engaging, interesting podcast on the issue of sexual harassment and assault, and where to next for the #MeToo movement within Australia’s unique legal and industrial relations context.
Things we need to talk about...
If the #metoo movement is to be the catalyst for social change that most women (and men) hoped to see then we need more content like this that gets under the skin of what’s changed and what is still yet to change. Great work Guardian Australia, looking forward to episode 2!
