Bitesize Lunchtime Talk: Women War Reporters with Jeannine Baker

Past Event

Wednesday, 3 February 2016 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm
Why do Australians know the names of Charles Bean, Alan Moorehead and Chester Wilmot, but not Agnes Macready, Anne Matheson and Lorraine Stumm? Join author Jeannine Baker as she tells the hidden story of Australian and New Zealand women war reporters who fought for equality with their male colleagues and filed stories from the main conflicts of the twentieth century. Jeannine will draw out the links between the experiences of these pioneers and the contemporary realities faced by women journalists of war, including Monica Attard and Ginny Stein, allowing us to see both in a new light.
