A Night In with Eimear McBride

In conversation with Alex Clark to mark the publication of Something Out Of Place: Women and Disgust

Join the acclaimed author of A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, Eimear McBride, as she explores her blistering non-fiction debut – a searing polemic interrogating the twin evils of misogyny and sexual objectification of women.

In conversation for this virtual event, Eimear will unpick the contradictory forces of disgust and objectification that control and shame women. From playground taunts of 'only sluts do it' but 'virgins are frigid', to ladette culture, and the arrival of 'ironic' porn, via Debbie Harry, the Kardashians and the Catholic church - she looks at how this prejudicial messaging has played out in the past, and still surrounds us today.

Don’t miss the opportunity to spend an evening with Eimear as she asks: are women still damned if we do, damned if we don't? How can we give our daughters (and sons) the unbounded futures we want for them? And, in this moment of global crisis, might our gift for juggling contradiction help us to find a way forward?
