Our first Salon of 2018 will be the East Midlands launch of Ella Whelan’s brilliant new polemic What Women Want: Fun, Freedom and an End to Feminism. Not to be missed! Here are some comments on her book:
“The brave, bold Ella Whelan is a leading voice of a rising generation of young warriors for free speech, which is lamentably threatened from both the left and the right in today’s world”. — Camille Paglia“And now, in this brilliant book, she puts the case for female autonomy against feminist victimhood. Some feminists will no doubt cry ‘anti-feminist!’, but this would be inaccurate; in fact, this book is in the tradition of the Suffragettes, the female explorers, the female workforce and other female pioneers of the 20th and 21st centuries who demanded that society should mine rather than suppress women’s potential. All women and men who value women’s liberation should read this”. — Brendan O’Neill (from the Foreword).Postgraduate student James Keith will chair this discussion.
