About the talk

In this entertaining lecture, she takes us on a deep dive into modern feminism and gender equality related to the exhibition "My life! My choice?". She shows examples of how media, popular culture and art present women and men in stereotypical ways, addresses some of the prejudices most of us carry when it comes to gender - and how we can avoid the worst pitfalls.
