Yumi Stynes

Yumi Stynes is a broadcaster and writer who’s been working in Australian media for almost two decades, evolving from music reporter to her current focus as a writer on Arts, Culture, Food, Gender Politics and Human Sexuality. She’s known for her honesty, warmth and humour.

Like many women, Yumi is juggling — she does a daily radio show, works on several writing projects and regularly runs 5 km for a laugh — all while raising four children. She fronts ‘Ladies, We Need to Talk’, the popular podcast with ABC Audio Studios and was the host of the award-winning documentary Is Australia Sexist? on SBS television.

Yumi is an accomplished MC, facilitator and speaker; recent events include Melbourne Writers Festival, Sydney Women’s March, She Leads Conferences, Art After Hours at AGNSW, Rural Sexual Health Conference and Women in Leadership Symposium.
