‘We are half the population and until we are equally represented in public life (and men in the home – but that’s a whole other story) we won’t really have equality. It’ll continue to be a man’s world that we inhabit.’
Once a girl in line for the bathroom at a music festival described Jan Fran as, ‘that girl who talks about politics on the internet’. This is true! Jan is a Walkley Award-nominated journalist, TV presenter, podcaster, and creator of the The Frant – an online opinion segment that has been viewed more than 20 million times. Jan is an ambassador for Plan International Australia, where she advocates for women and girls and her strong reporting on women’s issues earned her a 2018 Walkley nomination for Women’s Leadership in Media. In 2019, she was awarded the Walkley Award for Commentary, Analysis, Opinion and Critique.
