LIVE BROADCAST – All About Women: Actually Autistic

March 12 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

In support to the 2023 International Women’s Day (IWD) campaign #EmbraceEquity, Bathurst Library will be screening one session of All About Women 2023 as a discussion panel live-broadcast direct from the Sydney Opera House. Featuring Chloe Hayden, Grace Tame & Jac den Houting, and curated and moderated by Amy Thunig.

Bookings preferred: 6333 6281

Nearly 80% of autistic women are mis- or un-diagnosed – but every day we’re learning more about this disability. Join our panelists to hear what it’s actually like to be autistic.

We live in a society that is only just beginning to recognise neurodivergence in women and non-binary people. So how does it feel to be misdiagnosed for years? Does greater public awareness lead to acceptance and inclusion when it comes to socialising?

What are some strategies to cope with ableist systems? And what stereotypes do we really need to put in the bin?

In a world where we often hear about autistic people, this panel of actually autistic high achievers tells us about their own lives, on their own terms. They’ll be sharing about navigating social scenes and professional settings, and what masking and mimicry mean. This will be an essential session exploring how everyone can be part of a world that is inclusive, accessible and full of support.
