The founder of the Everyday Sexism Project Laura Bates comes to discuss her new book, Fix the System, Not the Women. Too often, we blame women. For walking home alone at night. For not demanding a seat at the table. For not overcoming the odds that are stacked against them. In this talk, Laura Bates will explore why we need to focus on making the world safer for women, not women's behaviour.

This distracts us from the real problem: the failings and biases of a society that was not built for women. In this explosive book, feminist writer and activist Laura Bates exposes the systemic prejudice at the heart of five of our key institutions.

Combining stories with shocking evidence, Laura's book is a blazing examination of sexual injustice and a rallying cry for reform.

Laura Bates has become something of a spokeswoman for the fourth wave of feminism. Laura has been named in the BBC Woman’s Hour Power List 2014 Game Changers, and in 2013 she won Cosmopolitan’s Ultimate Woman of the Year Award. She was also named CNN’s 10 Visionary Women List.
