The Dangers of Original Thought 

Erin Pizzey

With special guest

  • Erin Pizzey, founder of the world’s first refuge for battered women.

Erin Pizzey says domestic violence is not a gender issue. “It’s quite simple”, she says, “if children are born into violent families, both boys and girls will be infected.” She believes eventually we will have to concentrate on an alternative strategy of love and hope for these problem families. We will have to abandon the model of idealising the “victim”, demonising the “perpetrator” and politicising the issues.

What Men Don't Talk About

With special guests:

  • Maggie Hamilton, author of What Men Don’t Talk About says “writing this book… was prompted by my growing unease at the many assumptions I had made about men. While I’d been happy to believe that… men were never vulnerable, when I took a closer look at men, I began to realise this wasn’t the case… I realised that the many dilemmas men grapped with, the pain they felt, were largely invisible.”
  • Nick Gleeson from Vision Australia has two children, lost his sight when he was seven years old after colliding with a supermarket door. After successfully competing in the gruelling Comrades 90km marathon run in South Africa in 2000, he climbed the challenging Mt Kilimanjaro, highest peak in Africa and was the first blind Australian to make it to the summit.
