About the Show
UNMODERATED: SANAM MAHER ON SEX –
THE GAUNTLET SERIES
In three separate sessions, we feature three clear-eyed non-fiction thinkers. Each will take to the stage for an hour to riff on a theme and throw down the gauntlet.
Sex: Sanam Maher is a Pakistani journalist and one of the most important feminist voices of her generation. Her book about the murder of Qandeel Baloch – a woman who became famous for the sexually provocative persona she cultivated – examines the toxic mix of culture, sexism and digital celebrity so prevalent across a range of societies. Join Maher as she talks about the meaning of Sex in one of the world’s most dynamic and complex countries, with a few pointers for thinking through Australia’s own challenges with gender and violence.
Unmoderated is a mini-lecture series set to provoke and challenge. Be prepared to have bubbles burst and your preconceptions unsettled.
