Speaker information

Dave Pickering

In honour of International Men’s Day 2016, Dave Pickering takes us on a personal journey through gender as he tries to explain masculinity both to you and to himself. Part true storytelling, part TED talk and part apology, the show looks at how the patriarchy hurts men too; how the patriarchy has hurt him, and how he has hurt people because of patriarchy. Drawing on an anonymous survey of 1000 men, feminist theory, internet memes and his life experience, Dave will explain the conclusions he has come to to after 35 years of trying to make peace with being a man.

Please join us for a glass of wine after the show in the Common Room, School of Public Policy, 29 Tavistock Square.
