Description

The Feminist Book Society Manifesto:

Feminist. Bookish. Curious. Inclusive. Challenging. Kind.

We are living in tumultuous times, and it’s easy to feel helpless in the face of inequity. Join co-founders Katy Loftus and Eleanor Dryden as they speak to three phenomenal women who through their work and writing prove that it’s possible to change the world, and give us the tools to do it:

Zahra Hankir is a Lebanese-British journalist who writes about the intersection of politics, culture, and society in the Middle East. She is the editor of first-of-its-kind essay collection Our Women on the Ground: Essays by Arab Women Reporting from the Arab World (Penguin Random House), in which nineteen sahafiyat—female journalists— tell us, in their own words, about what it’s like to report on conflicts that (quite literally) hit close to home.

Gina Martin is an activist and writer, whose first book Be The Change: A Toolkit for the Activist in Youan essential manual for the modern activist looking to make a change at any levelis out now. Gina led the successful national campaign to make upskirting illegal, which saw the Voyeurism Act being passed in early 2019 and coming into effect in April.

Bethany Rutter is a writer, editor, fashion blogger, co-host of What Page? Podcast, and a fierce UK voice in the debate around body positivity, editor of street-style photography book PLUS+. She is author of No Big Deal, her warm, funny, inspiring debut YA novel, which tells the story of Emily who faces a constant battle to stay strong and be her true self.

Tickets are £10/8 Students and Plus cardholders/ £7 for Feminist Book Society newsletter subscribers. All tickets include a glass of wine or soft drink
