Categories: talks amy

Hear from influential speakers and inspirational presenters including Laura Bates (founder of The Everyday Sexism Project), Radio 1's Gemma Cairney and psychotherapist Susie Orbach. Don't miss activities including life drawing, feminist embroidery and live musical performances. 

Ladybeard is a feminist publication that takes the form and format of the glossy but revolutionises the content. Their first issue took 'sex' as its theme and their second 'mind'. Their third, 'beauty' will be out in winter 2017.

Keynote Speakers and Timings: 

Laura Bates, 11am-12pm
Laura is the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, an ever-increasing collection of over 100,000 testimonies of gender inequality. Laura writes regularly for the Guardian, TIME magazine, Independent, Grazia, Red Magazine and others. Laura will be interviewed by Otegha Uwagba, formerly of Vice, and founder of 'Women Who', a network for creative working women. The initiative’s first project is Little Black Book, an A6-sized publication featuring practical and philosophical advice for its readers.

Gemma Cairney, 12.45-1.45pm
Radio 1's resident agony aunt on The Surgery and author of 'Open: A Toolkit for How Magic and Messed Up Life Can Be'. 'Open' is full of honest advice about the big, bad and beautiful things that growing up is all about: from mental health to families to first love, and everything in between. Gemma will be interviewed by Bethany Rutter. Bethany works in fashion, writes about bodies and clothes on the side, and hosts the podcast Hello Friend.

Susie Orbach, 2.30-3.30pm
Psychotherapist, psychoanalyst, writer and social critic, Susie will be exploring body image and eating disorders. Susie will be in conversation with Abigail Morris, Director of the Jewish Museum. 

All are welcome.
