Tortoise Book Club with Helen Lewis on Difficult Women

Thursday 30 April 2020

Duration: 6:30PM – 7:30PM

Status: Completed

“Well-behaved women don’t make history: difficult women do.”

Lauded by Caitlin Moran, Mary Beard and Caroline Criado Perez amongst many others, Helen Lewis joins us to discuss her brilliantly unapologetic book, which reclaims feminist history from impossibly perfect heroines and gives it back to a rollcall of complicated, contradictory and downright difficult women. It’s a tale of bombings, arson and bad sex; lesbian politicians and wronged Victorian wives. A rousing read for faint-hearted feminists everywhere and a pertinent reminder that the battle for equality goes on, even during the C-19 crisis.

Chair: Matt d’Ancona, Editor and Partner, Tortoise

How does a digital ThinkIn work?

A digital ThinkIn is like a video conference, hosted by a Tortoise editor, that takes place at the advertised time of the event. Digital ThinkIns are new to Tortoise. Now that our newsroom has closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, we feel it’s more important than ever that we ‘get together’ to talk about the world and what’s going on.

The link to join the conversation will be emailed to you after you have registered for your free ticket to attend. When you click the link, you enter the digital ThinkIn and can join a live conversation from wherever you are in the world.

Remember to allow notifications from Tortoise in your phone’s settings so we can remind you when the digital ThinkIn is about to start.
