In support of the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence campaign, Frankston City Council invites you to a lunchtime session to explore women’s diverse experiences of gender inequality. This international campaign runs every year from 25 November to 10 December, starting on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and ending on Human Rights Day.

Jax Jacki Brown is a disability and LGBTIQ rights activist, writer, public speaker, disability sexuality educator and workshop designer and facilitator. Jax holds a BA in Cultural Studies and Communication where she examined the intersections between disability and LGBTIQ identities and their respective rights movements. Jax is a  member of the Victorian Ministerial Council on Women's Equality, the Victorian governments' LGBTI taskforce Health and Human Services Working Group and the Victorian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission’s Disability Reference Group. She was named one of the 25 LGBTI People to Watch in 2015 and is a co-producer of Quippings: Disability Unleashed a disability performance troupe in Melbourne. Jax teaches in disability at Victoria University and enjoys transmitting her passion for disability rights into practical applications for students. Through her presentations at conferences and universities, and her extensive publications, she provides a powerful insight into the reasons why society needs to change, rather than people with disabilities.
