Wendy McCarthy celebrates the achievements of feminism, reflects on her experiences and reinforces the importance of further cultural change in her Pamela Denoon Lecture last month.

“Glass ceilings have been shattered, sticky floors have been smoothed, male champions have emerged but those statistics tells us there is a long road ahead for the women in Australia to hold up half the sky.”

Speaking on the topic “Has feminism failed Australian women” at the ANU March 11, Wendy asks how the F-word became so scary and offers suggestions on how to reframe some of the key issues in order to retain the hard won victories.
