Lisa Appignanesi, Bidisha, Linda Grant and Rachel Holmes - Fifty Shades of Feminism

Sunday 19 May 2013, 17:00 to 18:15

Fifty years after the publication of The Feminine Mystique, have women really exchanged purity and maternity to become desiring machines inspired only by variations of sex, shopping and masochism – all coloured a brilliant neuro-pink?

In Fifty Shades of Feminism, 50 women – young and old, writers, politicians, actors, scientists, mothers – reflect on the shades of feminism that inspired them and what being woman means to them today. Two of the editors – Lisa Appignaesi and Rachel Holmes – join two of the contributors – Bidisha and Linda Grant – to discuss some of the issues raised about being a feminist today.
