The 2022 All About Women Festival at the Opera House features 21 events including talks, panels, performances, workshops and a participatory art encounter, with more than 50 international and Australian artists, thinkers and storytellers. Outgoing Australian of the Year and outspoken advocate for survivors of sexual assault Grace Tame will speak alongside Rosie Batty. And it wouldn’t be a bonafide feminist festival without an apperance from American writer Roxane Gay, who’ll be speaking with Time Out Future Shaper Nakkiah Lui. Provocative feminist writer Clementine Ford will present a love sermon. And much more.
