Truly thrilling tales of women’s real-life resistance.
Hear the stories of eight extraordinary Australian women, loaded with real-life demonstrations of the power of women to outlast, outwit and out-muscle the ugly beast of sexism.
Walkley Award winning film-maker and playwright Victoria Midwinter Pitt crafted I’m With Her from frank and intimate conversations with:
Counter-terrorism expert Anne Aly MP
Sex worker activist Julie Bates
Botanist Marion Blackwell
World champion surfer Pam Burridge
Bartender Nikki Keating
Catholic nun Patricia Madigan
Anthropologist and Indigenous leader Marcia Langton
Australia’s first female Prime Minister Julia Gillard
Together, these women light up the golden thread that runs right through the patriarchy – and may yet be its undoing – the strengths women use to keep turning up to our own lives.
Hearing their stories in solidarity is a powerful exercise in defiance, a fire starter for change.
This is a staged reading featuring a diverse cast of women from across the Western Australian community.
“This play burns with the generational energy of its characters, young and old. It reminds us—all women—of how much power we have in being ourselves.”—June Oscar AO, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Social Justice Commissioner
“A brave and beautiful show. As a piece of resistance, it’s bloody brilliant.”—Sydney Morning Herald
“A firestorm. A cultural milestone for Australian feminism.”—Audrey Journal
