Part of WOW – Women of the World
Renowned journalist, activist and author Naomi Klein discusses the present political landscape with WOW founder Jude Kelly.
Klein is the author of international bestselling books including No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need; This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate; The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism and No Logo.
She delivers her first major speaking engagement since being appointed the inaugural Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
In this conversation, Klein takes a close look at politics and media at this critical time for women, human rights, economic justice and climate change.
The author is known for her writing criticising corporate globalisation and consumer culture, and her articles have appeared in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Guardian, The London Review of Books, and Le Monde.
Since the New York Times bestseller This Changes Everything was published in 2014, Klein’s focus has been on putting ideas into action – including as one of the organisers and authors of Canada’s Leap Manifesto, a blueprint for a rapid and justice-based transition off fossil fuels, which has inspired climate justice initiatives around the world.
In 2016 she was awarded Australia’s prestigious Sydney Peace Prize, for ‘inspiring us to stand up locally, nationally and internationally to demand a new agenda for sharing the planet that respects human rights and equality, and for reminding us of the power of authentic democracy to achieve transformative change and justice.’
