A panel discussion on safety and law reform, power redress and cultural change. Speakers included Bri Lee (author of Eggshell Skull); Josh Bornstein (principal lawyer, Maurice Blackburn); Katherine Teh (founder, Futureye); and Mary Crooks AO (executive director, Victorian Women’s Trust).
This session looked deeply at the entrenched culture of sexism in workplaces, such as the High Court; the pervasive silence that surrounds sexual harassment and abuse; the reticence of men in calling out abusive behaviours; and necessary pathways forward to ensure safety, dignity and respect for all.
Recorded Tuesday 28 July 2020, live on Zoom.
