The State of Being Equal: The End of Patriarchy
Readings Carlton — 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053
We are excited to host a new event series in 2017. The State of Being Equal is a forum intended to make sure we trump Trump politics, by exploring how society can be more equitable and just, rather than divisive and bellicose. Each event in the series will examine a new title that is relevant to global and sexual politics.
Join us for this sure-to-be fascinating conversation between Robert Jensen, author of The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men and Mary Crooks, executive director of the Victorian Women’s Trust. Jensen calls for a radical feminist challenge to institutionalised male dominance, rejects the notion of men having any rights over controlling women’s sexuality and reproduction, and demands the end of the violence and coercion at the heart of our patriarchal system.
