Repost- In 2015, the f-word is making headlines more than ever: why do some women hate feminism? What is the “fourth wave” of feminism? Who decides what it means to be a feminist? Can men be feminists? Do campaigns such as #freethenipple trivialise feminism when global issues like female infanticide, genital mutilation and#bringbackourgirls remain unsolved? And, with men still earning more than women and sexism rife from campus to offices, where has it really got anyone?
On Wednesday 18 March at 7pm GMT, join us here as we liveblog from the Guardian Live: What’s all the fuss about feminism? event at Conway Hall, London. We will also be streaming the discussion live. Join us on Twitter #guardianlive
On Wednesday 18 March, the Guardian is holding a sold-out debate about feminism at Conway Hall in London, with a panel spanning a wide range of generations and perspectives. Chaired by Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, the panel includes the award-winning journalist and author Beatrix Campbell OBE; writer on politics and sexual identity Jane Fae; author and playwright Bonnie Greer; and teenage feminist and No More Page 3 campaigner Yas Necati.
Knowing many people would have liked to ask questions or share their thoughts on feminism are now unable to attend the sold-out event, we will be livestreaming and liveblogging the event here, from 7pm GMT on Wednesday 18 March.
