Battle Cry: Joanna Williams on contemporary feminism

The author of Women vs Feminism talks to Max Sanderson.

Feminists routinely argue that women remain disadvantaged in society. But as Joanna Williams argues in her new book, Women vs Feminism: Why We All Need Liberating from the Gender Wars, this is now rarely the case in the UK. In fact, as she explains to Max Sanderson, by emphasising vulnerability, contemporary feminism actually perpetuates some out-dated notions about women and moves us further away from equality and liberation.

Joanna is speaking in the session Women versus Feminism: do we all need liberating from the gender wars? at the Battle of Ideas festival at The Barbican in London on 28 October 2017.

Women vs Feminism: Why We All Need Liberating from the Gender Wars was published by Emerald on 10 October 2017.
