From earliest childhood, girls are misled about their bodies. They grow up without a full and honest sex education, and this lack of knowledge has serious consequences. During the week of International Women’s Day, Lynn Enright will be discussing her new book Vagina: A Re-education with Laura Coryton, leader of the successful international campaign against tampon tax, and author of the empowering book Speak Up!.
Laura and Lynn – chaired by Gower Street’s Rosie Beaumont-Thomas – will discuss their experiences, as well as vital social issues like period poverty, FGM and the rights of transgender women; women’s sexual and reproductive health; and experiences of sex and pregnancy and pain and pleasure.
There will be a Q&A, and opportunity for audience contributions throughout. We will finish the evening with a set from comedian Karen Hobbs, whose work with The Eve Appeal fights the stigma around gynaecological cancers.
Tickets are £10/8 (students/Waterstones cardholders) and include a glass of wine or soft drinkMore information
