Join comedian, podcaster and writer Deborah Frances-White, psychotherapist Dr Leyla Hussein and founder of the Everyday Sexism Project Laura Bates for a discussion exploring current issues around women’s sexuality.

This event responds to our recent Citi exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic, which included guest contributions from Frances-White.

Women and girls continue to experience sexual violence in our society. We have a criminal justice system that is continually failing victims of rape. The safety of women and girls and the presence of systemic misogyny and failings in the police have been brought into sharp focus with the recent and shocking abduction, rape and murder of Sarah Everard, along with the murders of Bibaa Henry, Nicole Smallman, Sabina Nessa, Zara Aleena and countless other victims of male violence that have not made the news. Although much has changed over the last 100 years, real gender equality is still very much beyond our reach.

Frances-White, Bates and Dr Hussein discuss where we are now – and what needs to happen to turn the tide on violence against women and girls.

Content and trigger warnings: this discussion will cover sensitive subject matter including misogyny, sexism, rape, female genital mutilation (FGM), domestic abuse, up-skirting, porn and body dysmorphia.

For further information or support on the issues raised please see the resources on The Everyday Sexism Project website: https://everydaysexism.com/ and the Rights of Women website: https://rightsofwomen.org.uk/

This event was pre-recorded on 8 September 2022 and therefore may not reference more recent events relevant to this topic.
