How a Woman is Made: Sara Pascoe and Laura Bates

11 Feb 2016

Comedian Sara Pascoe and activist Laura Bates (founder of the Everyday Sexism Project) have both tackled femininity and the media's portrayal of women. In her first book, Animal: How a Woman is Made, Pascoe combines autobiography and evolutionary history to look at how the female body has been oppressed, fetishized or misunderstood throughout history. Laura Bates's Girl Up is a lively manifesto about body image and the trials of modern media. Expect frank and very funny conversation as they discuss everything from plastic surgery to pubes with Zoe Williams.
