Everyday Sexism Project: Smock Alley Theatre for Dublin Writers Festival evening event

Posted: May 21, 2014 in Uncategorized

 Laura Bates, Jenny Dunne and Dearbhail McDonald – The Everyday Sexism Project

Date: Fri 23rd May at 8pm     Venue: Smock Alley Theatre     Price: €12 / €10

In a recent interview, Laura Bates said she didn’t know what sexism meant. After enduring a spate of unrelated incidents, she began to ask friends and colleagues about their own experiences and a shocking fact emerged: every woman she spoke to had encountered sexism not at some point in the past.

She then set up the Everyday Sexism Project, a website dedicated to documenting people’s personal experiences of sexism.

Chaired by Sinéad Gleeson, a panel of leading journalists and campaigners will explore sexism in all its contemporary forms.

Joining Bates to discuss these issues are Dearbhail McDonald, Legal Editor at the Irish Independent, and Jenny Dunne, who runs the Irish branch of Hollaback, an international website dedicated to ending street harassment.
