Masculinity Reimagined

Masculinity has been splashed across media headlines a lot lately, thanks to the rise of the #MeToo movement, the growing popularity of influencers like Andrew Tate, and Trump's use of weaponized masculinity throughout his presidency. But what often gets lost in the debate and blaming discourse is the real-life experience of men and women when it comes to gender relations. Are celebrities like Harry Styles actually helping to shift the dial and role model a new expansive view of gender, or are we going backwards with misogyny and homophobia reigning supreme on social media?

Join The Daily Aus co-founder Zara Seidler, for this thought-provoking exploration of masculinity in modern society. We'll discuss the role that women play within the movement, explore the reasons why some men resist change while others embrace it, and learn how a new masculine agenda could safeguard men for generations to come. With special guest panellists: Tarang Chawla (award-winning human rights activist, broadcaster, lawyer, and co-founder of 'Not One More Niki'), Dr Zac Seidler (clinical psychologist and Movember men’s health expert), and author and activist Chanel Contos (Founder and CEO of 'Teach Us Consent' and Youth Engagement Lead at the Global Institute for Women's Leadership).

Join the founders of The Daily Aus, Sam Koslowski and Zara Seidler, and Capital Brief's co-founder David Eisman and Editor-in-Chief John McDuling to hear how two of Australia's most exciting news media start-ups are approaching a new era of news.
