What is boyhood? What is masculinity? And how do we begin to dismantle old-fashioned ideas about what boys and men should be and do, in order to build a better future for everybody?
At this special event, fearless feminist author Clementine Ford will spark off an animated night of discussion on gender, entitlement and equality. Ford’s first book was the bestselling manifesto, Fight Like a Girl. At Tucks she’ll share ideas from her new book, Boys Will Be Boys, on the ways we are all harmed by restrictive notions of masculinity.
Clementine Ford will present a 20-minute provocation on the theme of boys and boyhood, before guests are invited to discuss her ideas over dinner and drinks. Later, Ford will speak with host Jamila Rizvi about the themes of her book – masculinity, privilege and power – before opening to audience Q&A and discussion.
Please note, if weather permits, this event may be held outdoors, under cover.
