Vamps, Vixens and Feminists - The Elephant In The Room

Sphinx is convening a professional forum on the issues around women's employment and representation in theatre, film and TV. The Writers’ Guild, with Equity and the Directors Guild of Great Britain, Women in Film and TV, and the Arts Council are collaborating in presenting this forum which will take place at the National Theatre in the Olivier Theatre on 16th June 2009 from 10am to 1.30pm. Tickets are free but places are limited.

The recent Gender Equality Duty has mandated all public institutions to give due regard to proactive promotion of gender equality within their organisations. More importantly, a significant aspect of the Gender Equality Duty is the responsibility of public bodies to actively promote equality between men and women.

Speakers include:

Kate Buffery, Katherine Rake, Beatrix Campbell, Tanika Gupta, Tracy Brabin and David Edgar.

To book a place please email with the subject line “Vamps, Vixens and Feminists” including your name, contact details and the professional body to which you belong (if applicable) in order to receive an e-invitation; alternatively you can call 020 7401 9994.
