Video: Julia Gillard, Women and Leadership for the Sydney Writers’ Festival 2020

Women and Leadership, co-authored by Julia Gillard and acclaimed development economist Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, combines research with interviews with some of the world’s extraordinary women leaders. They spoke with Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, and more, to examine the influence of gender on women’s access to positions of leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end.

Julia talks to Jacqueline Maley about her advocacy and research, the radical shift required to close the gender gap, and her inspirational new book that she hopes will provide women with a road map of essential knowledge and an action agenda for change.

The original event was streamed live on Facebook on Sunday 12 July 2002. Watch the full interview below.
