Policy, Gun and Money: International Women’s Day special

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, the ASPI podcast crew are excited to share this brilliant all-female line-up with defence, foreign policy and national security expertise.

Danielle Cave, deputy director of ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre, is joined by Tanvi Madan, director of the India Project and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, to discuss India and the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue and the prospects for increased collaboration between the Quad countries.

ASPI’s Lisa Sharland speaks with Jenna Allen, research assistant for Deane-Peter Baker at UNSW’s Australian Defence Force Academy. Jenna shares some insights into her journey in building a career in defence and national security and outlines some of the work of UNSW’s ‘Women in Future Operations’ group.

The Strategist’s Anastasia Kapetas and ASPI research intern Khwezi Nkwanyana highlight the achievements of four pioneering women in foreign correspondence: Ida B. Wells, Martha Gellhorn, Oriana Fallaci and Claire Rewcastle Brown. In tracing their influence and groundbreaking work, the discussion captures some of the history of trailblazing women journalists.
