Join Tara Moss, an acclaimed author, journalist and human rights advocate for an inspiring breakfast this International Women’s Day. Tara will share her personal story and talk about her work in helping women find their voice, and driving change for future generations of women.

In June 2016, Tara released her second non-fiction work, Speaking Out: A 21st Century Handbook for Women & Girls, “an essential, accessible and practical handbook for women on speaking out safely and confidently”. Tara’s critically acclaimed and first non-fiction title The Fictional Woman (2014) topped the national non-fiction bestseller list.

In 2014 Tara was recognised for Outstanding Advocacy for her blog Manus Island: An insider’s report, about events surrounding the alleged murder of Reza Barati inside the Australian-run Manus Island Immigration Detention Centre.

An active and outspoken advocate for women’s and children’s rights, Tara received the Edna Ryan Award in 2015 for her contribution to feminist debate. That same year, she launched the Full Stop Foundation for Rape & Domestic Violence Services Australia at Parliament House, becoming the foundation’s patron. Tara is also the UNICEF Australia’s National Ambassador for Child Survival and the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, has spoken at schools on cyberbullying and online child safety, and in March 2017 will launch the TV show Cyberhate on the ABC – a documentary about online abuse she co-wrote, produced, and presented.

Tara is also a PhD Candidate at the University of Sydney Department of Gender and Cultural Studies.
