Peacock Theatre, Portugal Street 
 

Professor Anthony Giddens, director of LSE, and Susie Orbach, psychotherapist and visiting professor at LSE, will be discussing Sexuality and the Politics of Everyday Life on Friday 15 November at LSE.

Professor Anthony Giddens, director of LSE is one of the world's foremost social theorists. He has been at the forefront of developing ideas in left of centre politics; his ideas have strongly influenced the development of New Labour in the UK, and have also made an impact upon many other social democratic parties elsewhere.

Susie Orbach is one of the UK's leading psychotherapists, who revolutionised the way women viewed their bodies with the publication of her book Fat is a Feminist Issue in the 1970s. Her recent publications include The Impossibility of Sex and On Eating. She is currently visiting professor based at the Sociology department at LSE.

The debate is free and open to all, with no ticket required.
