Laura Bates: Fix the System, Not the Women image

Part of Durham Book Festival.
Combining first-hand accounts with shocking evidence, Fix the System, Not the Women is a blazing examination of the societal systems that fail to protect women, and a rallying cry for reform. Too often, we blame women: for walking home alone at night; for not asking, or asking forcefully enough, for a seat at the table; for not overcoming the odds that are stacked against them.
In this explosive book, feminist writer and activist Laura Bates exposes the systemic prejudice at the heart of five key institutions in our society, and with her characteristic insightful analysis offers concrete ideas for a way forward.
Laura Bates is the celebrated author of Everyday Sexism and Men Who Hate Women.
Chaired by Sarah Shaffi
