8 April to 29 April

If history is told by the victors, the story of war is usually told by the blokes. Now, it's the ladies' turn. Nearly a thousand Australian women had a part in the Vietnam War, as entertainers, typists, consular staff and army nurses. The one thing they have in common is that their lives were changed forever.

Minefields and Miniskirts relays the voices of those who were there, and is full of surprises. The pain of war is here, but be prepared to laugh; these are the voices of ordinary women revealing how they survived a war and discovered what they believe in.

By Terence O'Connell, from the book by Siobhan McHugh

Minefields and Miniskirts is a series of funny, fascinating, sad and poignant stories of Australian women who lived in Vietnam during the war. These women are now 'all grown up' and have important stories to tell, in many cases, for the very first time.

Join Trish Lake, award-winning producer, Judith Nguyen OAM and friends for a lively and robust panel discussion about the value of women's perspectives of conflict, and the importance of mature women's stories in creating informed and progressive communities.
