Clementine Ford on Boyhood: Food for Thought at Tucks

Where

When

What is boyhood? What is masculinity? And how do we begin to dismantle old-fashioned ideas about what boys and men should be and do, in order to build a better future for everybody?

Get thinking in November, with riveting conversation over delicious food and wine at Tucks winery in Red Hill. At this special event, fearless feminist author Clementine Ford will spark off an animated night of discussion on gender, entitlement and equality. Ford’s first book was the bestselling manifesto, Fight Like a Girl. She’ll share ideas from her new book, Boys Will Be Boys, on the ways we are all harmed by restrictive notions of masculinity.

Ford will present a 20-minute provocation on the theme of boys and boyhood, before guests are invited to discuss her ideas over dinner and drinks. Later, Ford will speak with host Jamila Rizvi about the themes of her book – masculinity, privilege and power – before opening to audience Q&A and discussion.

Antipodes will be our bookseller at this event.
