In this episode, we're travelling back in time to Australia in 1965. The Beatles are on the radio, the contraceptive pill isn't available and many of the freedoms women hold dear are being fought for by the women who came before us. We're talking to some of the inspirational women who have lived the difference as they share how far we've come and what's left to do, to end sexism once and for all.
