December’s Salon event sees the team asking 'The F-word: has the battle been won or do we still need feminism?'
Is the battle won? Or has it just changed?
Nobody doubts that there is a place in our society for feminism, but with bra-burning being a thing of the past – what is it’s role in our modern lifestyle? Two speakers are presenting us with their viewpoints.
The first speaker, Valerie Bryson (professor of politics, school of human and health sciences, University of Huddersfield) will be considering whether we have come far enough, and that addressing feminist questions is increasingly urgent for our society.
The other speaker, Alan White (professor of Men’s Health, Leeds Metropolitan University) asks why there is no male equivalent, and considers how feminism shapes a man's view of the world.
Date: Tuesday, 9th December
Time: 6.00pm – 8.30pm
Price includes soup and a sandwich, mulled wine and mince pies.
