The New Sex:
Empowered women, emasculated men? Are
our sex lives improved by equality?
The second of three events in “The New Sex” series with Psychologies
magazine, we explore how feminism has changed the way we have sex.
Three excellent speakers will join chair and couple psychotherapist Professor
Brett Kahr for the debate: feminist writer Natasha Walter, author of
Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism; Rebecca Asher, former deputy editor
of Radio 4 Women’s Hour and author of new book Shattered: Modern
Motherhood and the Illusion of Equality; and philosopher Robert Rowland
Smith. Comment from TCCR couple therapists on how they approach
some of the difficult issues will be integral to the discussion.
Time: 6pm for drinks reception, 6.30—8pm debate
Address: The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships,70 Warren Street,
London W1T 5PB
Tickets cost £20 including drinks reception
Being a woman no longer means simply being
a mother, a housekeeper and a wife. The feminism
revolution of the 60s has given us license
to work wherever we want and manage our
relationships however we want. But as traditional
gender roles become blurred, what’s
the effect on how men and women navigate
sexual relationships? Is equal sex better sex?
Or does this departure from strict dating and
sexual rules make our lives more complicated?
