Public Lecture: For Love…

By 3 November 2012 1

Building on the rich legacy of Clare Burton’s research and advocacy for women in the workforce, Jane Caro and Catherine Fox will bring their own take on the idea of “for love…”. As authors of The F Word: How we learnt to swear by feminism, their approach blends decades of experience as workers, mothers and commentators with insights on how it actually feels to confront the confusing signals about being female at work, at home and in our society.

Together they will explore what the idea of ‘doing it all for love’ means to women and their lives, their status and treatment, weaving in perspectives on the latest media trends, the zeitgeist and a sharp skewering of the accepted view of gender relations. They will also track the way beliefs about what drives women and their ‘innate’ abilities overtly and covertly undermines their ability to be given a fair go in the work place.

Jane Caro wears many hats, including author, lecturer, mentor, social commentator, columnist, workshop facilitator, speaker, mum, broadcaster and award-winning advertising writer.

Catherine Fox writes The Australian Financial Review’s weekly Corporate Woman column and is deputy editor of AFR Boss magazine. During a long career at the AFR she has written for and edited a number of sections of the newspaper and won several awards for journalism. She is the co-author of two books and is a regular speaker on workplace and gender issues.

Light refreshments will follow the lecture.

I had a bit of a giggle at this being on from 4pm to 5pm on a Tuesday: makes it a tad difficult for most people working ‘normal’ hours to attend.

And many of the rest of us will have children to look after at that time.

Classic.
