Queen Victoria Women’s Centre IWD Address

Presented by Amy Gray

Reclaiming Cyber Space – how the internet has become the new battleground in the fight for equality for women.

The internet is painted as a place hostile to women, filled with meninists and gamergaters. But for every misogynistic campaign or hashtag, women rise up to defend and make their own spaces in new and hilarious ways. Amy Gray, political and feminist columnist, takes us through how the internet might just be a woman’s best ally in the search for equal rights.

NT Working Women’s Centre

Invite you to celebrate International Women’s Day and our 20th anniversary on Friday 6 March 2015.
Join us for refreshments followed by a screening of:

two days, one night
Almost immediately after returning to her factory job following mental health leave, Sandra, a working-class mother played by Marion Cotillard, is laid off because her fellow workers voted to receive a bonus rather than keep her as the seventeenth person on the team. When she learns that their team leader persuaded them to vote against her under false pretenses, Sandra convinces the plant manager to hold a second, secret vote. It’s now Friday afternoon, leaving Sandra only two days and one night to save her job and, quite possibly, the life her family knows. Swallowing her pride, Sandra sets out to convince her sixteen co-workers, one by one, to vote in her favour.

NB: This film is in French with English subtitles. Rated PG-13
When: Friday 6 March 2015, refreshments from 5.30pm, films from 7pm (including the NTWWC anniversary short film)
