Clementine Ford in conversation - Boys will be Boys - Thursday 11th October at 6.30pm - BOOK & TICKET
Clementine Ford reports that one of the questions she is most asked in person and online is ‘How do I raise my son to be a feminist? How do I make sure he’s a supporter rather than a perpetrator?’ It is a question that many parents with sons are haunted by and, now that she is mother to a baby boy, it is a question that haunts Clementine too.
How does a feminist raise a son in a world that conditions boys into entitlement, privilege and power at the expense of not just girls’ humanity but also their own? All boys start out innocent but by the time they are adolescents many of them will subscribe to a view of masculinity that is openly contemptuous of women and girls.
From the author of the bestselling feminist manifesto Fight Like A Girl comes an incendiary new book that reveals how the patriarchy is just as harmful to boys and men as it is to women and girls.
Clementine Ford will be in conversation with Brooke Davis to discuss ’Boys will be Boys’ on Thursday 11th October at 6.30pm at the Judith Cottier Theatre, Perth College.
