The New (Female) Disruptors: Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Eileen Ormsby, Antonia Pont, Jenny Sinclair

As the digital revolution continues to unleash radical change on industries, economies, politics and institutions, what future will this disruption shape? Is the brave new world one of decentralisation, anti-elitism and individual freedom – or surveillance, monopoly and control? And what does it mean in particular for women?

Yassmin Abdel Magied, Eileen Ormsby and Jenny Sinclair discuss the current era of disruption and what it signals for the future of feminism with Deakin University’s Antonia Pont.

This event was presented in partnership with Geelong Regional Libraries, Deakin University’s School of Gender and Sexuality Studies, and GriffithReview for the launch of Edition 64 – The New Disruptors.
