An evening with Joni Seager in conversation with Catherine Mayer

Wednesday 21st November 18:30 at London - Trafalgar Square

Join us for a discussion with feminist scholar Joni Seager who will be discussing her new book, The Women’s Atlas, with Catherine Mayer, co-founder of the Women’s Equality Party and author of Attack of the 50 Ft. Women

About the 'The Women's Atlas':
An invaluable feminist resource and example of cutting-edge data visualization, this beautifully designed new edition of Seager’s award-winning atlas matches the mood of the moment­ with bold, vivid infographics to illustrate the status of women worldwide and the diversity of their experiences.
 
‘A life-saver and page-turner… This will add to everyone’s knowledge and power. Nobody should be without this book.’ Gloria Steinem

Joni Seager’s visually stunning survey of up-to-the-minute global data redefines what is meant by an atlas. Comprehensive and accessible, her incisive prose combined with the creative use of illustration, charts and infographics portray as never before how women are living across continents and cultures—the advances that have been made and the distances still to be travelled.

The result is the most up-to-date global analysis of key issues facing women today: gender equality, literacy and information technology, feminism, the culture of beauty, work and the global economy, changing households, domestic violence, LGBTQ rights, government and power, motherhood, and more.

About 'Attack of the 50 Ft. Women':
Catherine Mayer reports from the frontline of 2017, a tumultuous year that saw women's rights and protections rolled back and the global tally of female leaders fall, but galvanised feminism. It was also a tumultuous year for the author herself, who for the first time writes in detail about her sex and age discrimination suit against her former employer, TIME, and how her battle for justice, like #MeToo, demonstrated the extraordinary power of women sharing stories.
