About this event
What does the twenty-first century emergence of new and alternative gender and sexual identities mean for policy, legislation, health and education if they critique the very foundations of how we talk about gender and sexuality today?
An ANU Gender Institute Signature Event, supported by the School of Culture, History & Language (CHL), the Global Institute for Women's Leadership (GIWL) and the Centre for Asian Australian Leadership (CAAL).
This event is a public forum run as part of Gender and Cultural Diversity in Politics: Australia, Asia and the Pacific. All are welcome to attend.
