#FEMINIST a conversation between Roxane Gay & Christina Hoff Sommers

In a controversial world first, This Is 42 is bringing to Australian shores the feminist — albeit a self-proclaimed ‘bad one’, New York Times Best Selling Author and editor, Roxane Gay face-to-face with self-described ‘factual-feminist’, philosopher and author Christina Hoff Sommers. Taking center stage, the intellectual giants will ignite an authentic, civilised discussion about their ideological differences, conversing on topics ranging from the division of domestic labour, feminism perpetuated in media, social inequality, violence against women, sexual harassment and more.

Inspired by today's social media and opinion-galvanised media landscape, #FEMINIST will reinforce the art of having idea-driven, honest, rational discussions; a conversation. Shining light on topics that have become movements defining the 21st century, Gay and Sommers have never been brought together to discourse with a shared vision of both educating and entertaining the audience.
