Are our sex lives improved by equality?
Next month’s event at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, in association with Psychologies magazine:
‘Being a woman no longer means simply being a mother, a housekeeper and a wife. The feminism revolution of the 60s has given us license to work wherever we want and manage our relationships however we want. But as traditional gender roles become blurred, what’s the effect on how men and women navigate sexual relationships? Is equal sex better sex? Or does this departure from strict dating and sexual rules make our sex lives more complicated?
The second of three events in our New Sex series with Psychologies magazine, we explore how feminism has changed the way we have sex. Three speakers will join chair and couple psychotherapist Professor Brett Kahr for the debate: feminist writer Natasha Walter, author of Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism; Rebecca Asher, former deputy editor of Radio 4 Women’s Hour and author of new book Shattered: Modern Motherhood and the Illusion of Equality, and philosopher Robert Rowland Smith. Comment from TCCR couple therapists on how they approach some of these difficult issues will be integral to the discussion.’
Date: Thursday 15th September 2011.
Time: 6pm for drinks reception, debate 6.30 – 8pm.
Address: The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, Warren Street, London, W1T 5PB.
