Part of: Storyhouse Women

The author and Women’s Equality Party co-founder is at the end of her tether. A better, brighter, more equal future shimmers on the horizon, yet we seem to be hurtling in the opposite direction. Deranged presidents and dangerous populists aren’t the only culprits. As progressive movements do battle with each other and among themselves, Mayer draws on her front-line experiences of journalism and politics to explain how debates became so damagingly polarised, to the detriment of all of us.

Is identity politics to blame? What makes us mistrust everyone but fall for fake news? Are we getting nastier—and might our attitudes to celebrity fuel this trend? Why do TED Talks bring Mayer out in hives? The simple truth, she says, is that life is complicated—and we’ll reach the feminist future she calls Equalia only by embracing that complexity.

A Funny, Free-wheeling Show about soundbite culture in a messy world. Go and see it: For Future’s Sake.
