Carla Wilshire in conversation with Nyadol Nyuon

Readings Bookshop

Event Date: 6 March 2024 06:30 PM to 6 March 2024 08:00 PM
Event Venue: Readings Carlton

To acknowledge International Women’s Day we are pleased to host a discussion between the founding CEO of The Social Policy Group, Carla Wilshire and Australian lawyer and human rights advocate, Nyadol Nyuon. In Time to Reboot: Feminism in the Algorithm AgeCarla Wilshire unpacks the uncomfortable parallels between a digital culture we find impossible to resist and the decline of gender equity – questioning whether the digital revolution is killing feminism. The book explores how the algorithms favoured by Big Tech are dramatically recasting our relationships and our personal values, and how AI trained on biased data is generating a new wave of male privilege. It questions whether the technology that is meant to both guide us today and show us the future is, in fact, pushing women backwards—and if so, looks at how we can fix this. Free, but bookings are essential. Please book here.
