Founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, Laura Bates is one of three speakers appearing at the Tackling Sexism on Campus event, next Thursday October 5.
The free event has been organised by Dr Zoe Alker, from the University of Liverpool’s Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology and Dr Andrew Davies from the Department of History.
The Everyday Sexism project invites the public to share instances of sexism experienced on a day to day basis, with the aim of “showing the world that sexism does exist, it is faced by women everyday and it is a valid problem to discuss”.
The project’s twitter account @EverydaySexism has more than 270,000 followers.
Joining Laura Bates is University of York’s Dr Vanita Sundaram, who is co-author of a pioneering report on ‘lad culture’ in higher education; and Liverpool John Moore University’s Stuart Taylor, co-author of an important new study of sexual violence and attitudes towards consent among students.
Tackling Sexism on Campus takes place at 6pm on Thursday October 5 in the Eleanor Rathbone Lecture Theatre, Eleanor Rathbone Building. Tickets are free but booking is essential.
