Join one of the most significant feminist voices of our time, Germaine Greer, as she discusses her controversial new essay, On Rape. While the #metoo movement has brought the pervasive nature of predatory behaviour to top of mind, Greer argues that centuries of different approaches to rape, as inflicted by men on women, have got us nowhere and there has to be a better way.

Germaine Greer bought 60ha of steep rocky land in southeast Queensland in 2001. Germaine became an interface between the forest and the world of humans, doing her best to protect it from exploitation and desecration. Join Professor Greer as she recounts the experience and shows how we all have an opportunity to do the same.
