Event description
Two groundbreaking authors in conversation together for 5x15

About this event

Join 5x15 to hear philosopher Amia Srinivasan, bestselling author of The Right to Sex, in conversation with the author of Three Women, Lisa Taddeo.

'[This] ambitious, magisterial work stands out in the ongoing tide of dull, girl boss feminism arguing for personal empowerment over collective liberation . . . In a world of easy, one-dimensional answers, [Srinivasan] is unquestionably the real deal' Vogue

Amia Srinivasan is the author of one of the most talked about books in recent times, The Right to Sex, which is published in paperback this May. A landmark collection of essays from one of the most exciting young philosophers at work today, it examines the politics and ethics of sex in the twenty-first century – from pornography to incels, rape culture to sex work. Lisa Taddeo is the New York Times-bestselling author of Three Women and Animal.

For this special online event hosted by 5x15, two literary stars come together to discuss this groundbreaking book and the issues it raises.

Amia Srinivasan was born in 1984 in Bahrain and raised in London, New York, Singapore and Taiwan. She is currently the Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory at All Souls College, Oxford, and has held permanent or visiting academic posts at University College London, Yale, NYU and UCLA. The Right to Sex is her first book and was named Blackwell’s Book of the Year 2021. It was acclaimed by critics and authors ranging from Judith Butler and Katherine Rundell, to Pandora Sykes and Emily Ratajkowski.

Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women (2019) became a world-wide sensation, forever changing how we think about women and desire. Nearly a decade in the making, Three Women was hailed instantly as a feminist classic – a staggering work of nonfiction that was the result of thousands of hours spent in the company of its subjects. Lisa has contributed to New York magazine, Esquire, Elle, Glamour and many other publications, and her short stories have won two Pushcart Prizes. Her debut novel, Animal, was published in 2021 and described by Marian Keyes as ‘like a series of grenades exploding'.
