There's a million reasons why we're told to keep quiet on difficult subjects: propriety and decorum, convention and status, fear of retribution. When women try to introduce nuance into certain public debates, it doesn't usually go well for them. Western media conglomerates are often more interested in protecting power than interrogating it. If a woman offers an unvarnished analysis of power structures, or a contrary view, it's often framed as ugly, inappropriate or ungrateful.

Two of the world’s most fearless, most honest, most forthright voices unpick the challenges and pitfalls of a life of truth.

In conversation with Sisonke Msimang.

Tickets for this event are also available as part of a 3-Plus Pass.
