Taking Bigotry to Task
A self-confessed ‘nerd, nomad and activist’, Laurie Penny is a potent commentator about feminism, gender and political dystopia, all of which helped make her the youngest nominee ever of the Orwell Prize. With a fierce intelligence, she has challenged norms and tackled prejudice, and she talks about the raw material which has fed into Bitch Doctrine, her book of 'essays for dissenting adults'. Chaired by Jenny Niven.
