A panel discussion with author, journalist and former political advisor Naomi Wolf on abortion and the pro-choice movement. Wolf’s work includes the The Beauty Myth (1991), a key text of the third wave feminist movement which the New York Times described as ‘one of the 70 most influential books of the 20th century’. She has written widely on feminist issues, including abortion, women’s sexual liberation, pornography, body image and female empowerment.

She will be joined by:

  • Dr Kate Greasley, Stowell Junior Research Fellow in Law, University College, Oxford
  • Dr Imogen Goold, Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, Oxford
  • Dr Angela Ballantyne, President, International Association of Bioethics and Senior Lecturer, Department of Primary Health Care and General Practice, University of Otago, New Zealand.

All welcome. Drinks and nibbles will be served.
