Join Mary Harrington and Bronwyn Williams as we discuss boys and girls and the future of us, drawing from gender economics research, lived wisdom, and the scapula-sharp wit in Mary’s book, ‘Feminism Against Progress,‘ to unpack where, why and how the quest for freedom and equality between the sexes has become just another set of chains – and why we may need to look backwards to untangle ourselves from them going forwards.
Come argue with writer, author and “reactionary feminist”, Mary Harrington, and professional court jester, Bronwyn Williams, as they unpack the radically old fashioned ideas in Mary’s book, ‘Feminism Against Progress.‘
Has “feminist” theory really served women’s interests in practice?
Are men and women really all that different?
What can future girls lean from past women about “having it all”?
Is the demand to quantify and price our relationships and care contributions making us cheaper and more disposable?
Is our seemingly relentless pursuit of DIY “meat lego” self-improvement and biohacking our way to a transhuman future empowering or destroying us?
As we delve into these touchy subjects, and more heretical (yet, really common sense) ideas, we invite you to join for the debate and speak your mind freely on the topics ladies and gentlemen are not “supposed” to speak about out loud anymore.
