Human Rights and Social Justice Lecture
The Human Rights and Social Justice Lecture series is one of the University's flagship events.
The series was inaugurated in 2001, and has been held annually since then. The lecture series was established to provide an opportunity for members of the University and the wider community to reflect on issues of social justice that challenge Australia.
The 2012 Human Rights and Social Justice Lecture "Her Rights At Work? The Political Persecution of Australia’s First Female Prime Minister" was presented by Anne Summers AO on Friday 31 August 2012 in the Griffith Duncan Theatre at the Callaghan Campus of the University of Newcastle.
An audience of over 600 University staff, students and community members heard a powerful exposition regarding the persecution of Australia's first female Prime Minister by politicians and other elements in Australian society.
