As a journalist, commentator, reviewer, and ideas person, Germaine Greer is constantly sought after for her views on the role of women in a world where they still face many inequalities.
In her upcoming talk at The Lights, Greer will attempt to explain the plight of women in today’s society, where they are becoming less visible in all walks of life.
Known for being an outspoken broadcaster and feminist icon, Greer said: “Forty years ago it seemed that women were about to take their rightful place in the world, in Parliament, in the church, in the judiciary, in the workplace, but when you open the newspaper today you find that news is still made by men in suits. And the female most likely to be seen in the sports pages will be a horse.”
“With each stage of their lives, as they become successively a wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, they become less visible.”
Throughout the evening Greer will attempt to explain this state of affairs and suggest some strategies for change.
The event will be a lively, informative and entertaining evening and audience members will have the chance to ask any burning questions they may have, be they serious or light hearted.
Visitors should be prepared for an enlightening and highly entertaining evening. Show starts at 7.30pm on Thursday 18 June. Tickets priced at £14 with concessions £13.
