Laura Bates (2016 Event)
The founder of the influential online project Everyday Sexism, Laura Bates was in the 2014 Woman's Hour Power List Game Changers Top 10 and is becoming well known for her refusal to accept the female stereotypes peddled by a normative mainstream media. Incorporating Bates’ views on subjects including sex, body image, pornography and social media, Girl Up is a powerful and refreshing contribution to 21st century feminism. In this event she discusses the book with Jenny Niven. Recorded live at the 2016 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
