Speaker(s): Laurie Penny

Recorded on 22 January 2013 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

Taking in Pussy Riot and the 2011 uprisings, and stretching back to the Paris Commune, a contextual look at how the rage and pride of women is personal, political – and endlessly powerful.

Laurie Penny is a journalist, blogger and author. She is currently a columnist and reporter for New Statesman.
