Bendigo Talk: War from a Woman's Angle

03 96 618 100

25 Oct 2016

In a War from a Woman's Angle, Jeannine Baker reveals the little-known stories of the trailblazing women journalists who have reported on war. Since Agnes Macready travelled to South Africa in 1900 to write about the Boer War for the Catholic Press, Australian women have fought for the right to cover conflict.

In 1914, Louise Mack defied the orders of Lord Kitchener to travel to Belgium, where she witnessed the fall of Antwerp. Katharine Susannah Prichard reported from close to the front at Wimeraux. These pioneers of war reporting carved a path for new generations of female foreign correspondents who have built upon their legacy.

This talk is part of the Shrine of Remembrance Regional Lecture Series and will be held at Bendigo RSL. Arrive 5.30pm for a 6pm start. Entry is by donation. Bookings are essential.
