RAHS Day Lecture – Trailblazing Women of Australian Public Broadcasting

April 5 @ 13:00 - 14:00

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Trailblazing Women of Australian Public Broadcasting, 1945-1975 presents a compelling feminist perspective of Australian radio and television history. It chronicles how a group of female producers defied the odds and forged remarkable careers at the ABC. This lecture traces their careers, following them as they worked on location shoots and in production offices, in television studios, control rooms and radio booths. In doing so it highlights the barriers, both official and unofficial, that confronted so many women working in broadcasting in the decades after World War II.

About the speaker: Kylie Andrews is an award-winning historian whose writing centres on media and gender, production studies and biography. She has a previous career in film, television and audio production, and has just published a new history of women at the ABC, titled Trailblazing Women of Australian Public Broadcasting, 1945-1975. Kylie divides her time between her role as a sessional academic at the University of Technology, Sydney and her work as a professional historian.
