Feminist Fight Club
Thursday 13 October 2016
6.00pm - 7.00pm
8 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6EZ
‘The first rule of the Feminist Fightclub is that you must talk about the Feminist Fightclub…’
In her part-manual, part-manifesto “Feminist Fightclub”, journalist and critic Jessica Bennett brings together the personal stories of a group of women who met regularly in New York City to explore and confront the external (sexist) and internal (self-sabotaging) behaviors that continue to plague women in the workplace —as well as the system that perpetuates them.
At the RSA, Jessica Bennett joins us for a special “in conversation” event to share these revealing workplace stats and stories. A leading voice in feminist popular culture today, Bennett offers a new vocabulary for all-too familiar sexist archetypes, and her combat techniques provide practical hacks for pushing back.
Chair: Gillian Orr, Features Editor, Refinery29
