An Evening With Laura Bates

An Evening With Laura Bates

Pioneering feminist, activist and bestselling author, Laura Bates will be joining us in store to discuss her latest work, Misogynation, with Hannah Beckerman. Misogynation is the latest collection of essays from the revered author of Everyday Sexism and Girl Up. From Weinstein to Westminster, the recent sexual harassment and assault allegations have led to a renewed prominence to discussions of consent, coercion and misogyny in many forms. In this collection of essays, originally published in the Guardian, Laura Bates explores patriarchal structures and modes of sexism that exist in our relationships, our workplaces, our media, our homes and on our streets. One hundred years since some women were first given the right to vote, Bates’ work explores the extent to which gender inequality continues to undergird contemporary social life. Laura Bates will be in conversation with Hannah Beckerman. Hannah is the author of The Dead Wife’s Handbook, and an upcoming new novel If Only I Could Tell You. She also works as a freelance journalist, contributing to The Observer, the Financial Times Weekend Magazine, and The Sunday Express, and has judged numerous book prizes, including the Costa Book Awards. Please join us for what promises to be a truly engaging evening.
