Diann discussed the basis for the book, the themes that emerged from a reflective stance of Julia Gillard’s Prime Ministership and the views of 17 leading Australian women who contributed to this book. She outlined key considerations for the nation to take on board to create a culture that is conducive for enabling access to and increasing the effectiveness of a woman in this Office in the near future.
Sociologist, feminist, activist and Professorial Fellow at the University of Technology Sydney, Eva Cox AO was a special Guest Speaker at this event. Eva's stirring, thought-provoking and inspiring speech focused on several aspects including Feminism and leadership. Eva challenged women to stand up and act rather than just contemplate acting.
