  • Breakfast Sessions: Women's Rights and Culture

Are human rights universal or do they represent a Western set of values?

This complex, and at times uncomfortable, conversation examines the tension between respecting culture and turning a blind eye.

A panel of Australia’s leading women’s rights activists and cultural ambassadors will explore notions of identity, media representation, gender equality, religion and culture, and the way these play out in the lives of women in multicultural Australia.
