Join writer Mona Eltahawy for an inspiring discussion of her bold and uncompromising feminist manifesto, The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls.

Drawing on the energy behind the #MeToo movement, Eltahawy takes the ‘seven necessary sins’ women and girls are not supposed to commit and transforms them into a call to arms in the fight against the patriarchy.

Incorporating stories from marginalised women around the world, this event invites you to draw on your inner fury and start to dismantle the systems that hold us all back.
