Fifty years after the publication of the seminal The Feminine Mystique, have women really gone from domestic paragons to machines of desire inspired by variations of sex, shopping and masochism – all coloured pink? Edited by Lisa Appignanesi, Susie Orbach and Rachel Holmes, 50 Shades of Feminism is a new anthology of women writers who think, who act, who inspire – in Technicolor. This event is an antidote to the idea that being a woman is all about submitting to desire.
Guests at this event include novelist and columnist Tahmima Anam and BBC World Service reporter Bee Rowlatt.
