LITERATURE WEEKEND IN THE CITY
Watch at Home
WATCH AT HOME EVENT
AVAILABLE ONLINE NOW UNTIL SAT 6 MAR
When Julia Gillard uttered the now-famous words, ‘I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man … Not now, not ever,’ the Earth shifted slightly on its axis. Nostalgic for this moment? Don’t be.
Join the former PM as she talks about her new book co-authored by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala . Women and Leadership: Real Lives, Real Lessons offers insights from Jacinda Ardern, Christine Legarde and a host of other supremely qualified women.
Julia will appear via live stream and will be in discussion with onstage moderator Meri Fatin.

Julia Gillard was sworn in as the 27th Prime Minister of Australia on 24 June 2010 and served in that office until June 2013. She is the first woman to ever serve as Australia’s Prime Minister or Deputy Prime Minister.
As Prime Minister and in her previous role as Deputy Prime Minister, Julia delivered nation-changing policies including reforming Australian education at every level from early childhood to university education, creating an emissions trading scheme to combat climate change, improving health care, commencing the nation’s first ever national scheme to care for people with disabilities, addressing the gender pay gap for social and community sector workers and delivering an apology to all those who had suffered through the practice of forced adoptions.
In October 2012 she received worldwide attention for her speech in Parliament on the treatment of women in professional and public life. She currently serves as the inaugural Chair of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at Kings College in London, which through research, practice and advocacy, is addressing women’s under-representation in leadership.
Julia is the Chair of Beyond Blue, one of Australia’s leading mental health awareness bodies; is Chair of global funding body for education in developing countries, the Global Partnership for Education; and is Patron of the Campaign for Female Education.
Her memoirs, My Story, were published by Random House in September 2014.
