Have your say on women's safety in the screen industry

Posted Tuesday 13 Feb 2018


We're looking forward to seeing you at this meeting organised by the newly formed Screen Women's Action Group (SWAG), to discuss ideas for eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace. SWAG says the meeting is the first stage of its campaign to change the culture that allows harassment, bullying, discrimination and other abuses of power over women in the screen industry. In response to the #MeToo campaign, initiatives are being developed by various screen entities, but your voice is important, so do come along.

The discussion will focus on these questions:

What are the issues for you?
What would make a difference to you?
How might that best be achieved?

When: Tuesday 6 March, 5:30 - 8:30pm

Where: Mt Eden War Memorial Hall, Mt Eden, Auckland
