Caitlin Moran: More than a Woman - All About Women 2021 (Auslan)
Accessible Performances • 1h 8m
A feminist handbook for middle age.
With Caitlin Moran.
Presented at All About Women, 7 March 2021, 6pm AEST
Ten years since Caitlin Moran's blockbuster memoir How To Be A Woman, she's juggling ageing parents, teenage daughters, and a bigger bum. How is one of our best-loved feminists finding her forties?
Caitlin Moran’s 2011 feminist memoir How to Be A Woman covered masturbation, abusive relationships, and abortion. The witty, astute and shocking book was a game-changing take on patriarchy and women's daily lives. Ten years later, feminism is sold at the supermarket, and the British columnist is in her forties, and turning her her eye to the exasperations of middle-age. Parenthood, the seduction of botox, saggy bits, the gendered and invisible labour of domestic life - nothing is off-limits.
Don’t miss your chance to spend an hour with one of the UK’s funniest writers, as she provides a guide to growing older, lays out a manifesto for change, and wonders: can feminism survive the pressures of middle age?
Please note, Caitlin Moran will be appearing via video link.
First broadcast Sunday March 7 2021.
Duration: approx 60 minutes.
