Around Australia, women in theatre have been discussing the barriers to their career advancement, and industry bosses have been dusting off their EO policies. Yes, it’s true – gender and feminism is back on the table in the arts arena too.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of International women’s day, vitalstatistix, a proudly feminist theatre company is hosting Boss Lady – a conversation about Women Art’s Leadership. It’s a chance for women to offload, unpack and speak up, in a day of discussion about the current position of women making art and art made by women.
Boss Lady is being hosted by writer, broadcaster, musician and feminist-trouble-maker Clementine Ford, and she joined us in the studio and Catherine asked her what barriers there are for women in the Arts.
WHEN: Tuesday, 8th March 11am – 5pm followed by performances and drinks until 8pm.
WHERE: Fringe Club Mullawirraburka, Rymill Park, Adelaide
HOW MUCH: Free, but donations are gratefully accepted.
