An Intimate Evening with Anne Summers
Armchair interview with leading Adelaide media academic Collette Snowden
With a re-emergence of interest in women’s issues it is clear that in 2015 women need to protect women's interests because progress is faltering in almost all spheres from pay to professional status, to self-determination.
As one of the influential figures of the 1970s feminist movement, as the woman who directed the first Office for the Status for Women and who has been women's advisor to two prime ministers, ANNE SUMMERS is still fighting for the women's cause. For a new generation of women in the media, who are now navigating a range of issues – some old, some new – her insight and experience on women and society, and the media, provides a wise but practical perspective.
Anne Summers is arguably the country's most respected feminist intellectual, and author of definitive books on the subject, most recently The Misogyny Factor. She isalso one of the nation's most significant media role models having carved a path in the mainstream media, and , as the mainstream falters, she is showing how new media can be used effectively. She has created the Anne Summers Reports magazine online and in supporting and enhancing its growing influence she has become an organiser of major political, cultural and media events – i.e. her Sydney Opera House public interview with former PM Julia Gillard.
Anne Summers was raised and educated in Adelaide. She returns to her old home, to be awarded with an honorary degree and to meet with South Australia's Women in Media.
