Public Lecture: The political persecution of Australia's first female PM by Dr Anne Summers AO
Date: Wednesday 17 October
Time: 6.00pm - 7.30pm
Location: Webster Theatre B, Webster Building, UNSW Kensington
Registration: Required. Please RSVP
You are invited to a lecture from Dr Anne Summers AO who will present her controversial views on the treatment of Julia Gillard by the federal opposition, the media and many members of the general public.
Her Rights At Work:
The political persecution of Australia's first female prime minister.
Featuring a post lecture discussion led by Prof Catharine Lumby
Journalism and Media Research Centre, UNSW
Abstract: Dr Summers has created a sensation in both traditional and social media by arguing that Australia's prime minister has been subjected to sex discrimination and sexual harassment, as set out under the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 and the Fair Work Act 2009.
In her lecture Dr Summers will discuss how Julia Gillard is being subjected to far worse than mere doublestandards. She will show that there is an entire industry of vilification, much of it sexually crude, all of it offensive and designed to undermine Gillard's authority and thus her legitimacy in the role as Australia's first female prime minister.
Dr Summers argues that we ordinary citizens, regardless of our political views or affiliations should say this is not acceptable; we should say: It Stops With Me.
