This event gives the audience the unique chance to hear the inside story of what enormous fun it’s been being a fearless international feminist icon and highly regarded academic through four decades of change. And of course, you can ask all those burning questions that you’ve been longing to throw at the Prof – serious or lighthearted.

Expect this unique close encounter with Germaine Greer to be candid, enlightening and highly entertaining.
