All About Women 2023

Sydney Opera House's All About Women (AAW) celebrates extraordinary thinkers, writers and artists, and poses vital questions about gender, equality and justice. In 2023, AAW enters its second decade with a program co-curated by Jamila Rizvi (she/her), Dr Amy Thunig (she/they), Jane Caro (she/her), and the Sydney Opera House Talks and Ideas team, led by Chip Rolley (he/him). Together they have created a lively and inclusive program to engage the curiosity of AAW's audience of women and gender diverse people, and their allies.

The 11th festival honours women and girls who fight to be heard – from protesters in Iran, to pro-choicers in the US, to advocates everywhere who defend the silenced. We'll explore friendship, family, and romance. We'll cross cultures, genders and generations to learn what community means. We'll find our voice, but we'll also learn to listen. The line-up features a mix of international and local speakers, appearing in person on the stages of the iconic Sydney Opera House.
