The Everyday Sexism Project: 10 Years On
Tuesday 28 February
1:00pm – 1:45pm
Join us on Tuesday 28 February to hear from feminist and gender equality campaigner, Laura Bates. Laura is recognised as a leader of the fourth-wave feminism movement and is the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, a web platform that collects testimonies of global gender inequality and which, to date, has received hundreds of thousands of entries.
Laura was awarded a British Empire Medal for services to gender equality in 2015, and is a respected media commentator. She has given TEDx talks and works closely with governments, schools and police forces, and organisations from the Council of Europe to the United Nations. Her campaign work alongside other activists has included persuading Facebook to change its policies on rape and domestic abuse content, putting sexual consent and healthy relationships on the school curriculum and improving the way in which the British Transport Police respond to incidents of sexual violence. She is the author of Everyday Sexism (shortlisted for Waterstones Book of the Year), the Sunday Times bestseller Girl Up, Misogynation, and Men Who Hate Women. Her most recent book, Fix the System, Not the Women, was named one of Waterstones’ best books of 2022.
We are delighted to be welcoming Laura to give a Talk! on all she is doing worldwide to tackle gender inequality and to look at the impact of The Everyday Sexism Project, ten years on.
