Join award-winning science journalist Angela Saini in search of the true roots of gendered oppression, as she untangles the complex history of patriarchal systems embedded in societies across the globe. In her latest book The Patriarchs: How Men Came to Rule, award-winning science journalist Angela Saini explores the science and history of male dominance, arguing that patriarchy is neither natural nor inevitable, but rather a fragile system that is constantly remade and reasserted. This August, join Saini in conversation with Karen Pickering for a bold conversation interrogating why, how and where patriarchy manifests and persists. She will discuss the ways patriarchies are established and evolve over time, explore matrilineal systems that have been subverted by colonialism, and look beyond old narratives to understand why the patriarchy persists today. Presented in partnership with the Victorian Women’s Trust
