 Behind the Headlines: What’s all the fuss about feminism?

Why do some women hate feminism? What is the ‘fourth wave’ of feminism? Who decides what it means to be a feminist? Can men be feminists? And, with the pay gap still widening and sexism prominent across campus and offices, where has it really got anyone?

With gender equality firmly on the news agenda, and comment and criticism from all sides, Guardian Live presents a range of voices from different generations and perspectives.

Chaired by founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, Laura Bates, join us to discuss the why, the what and the where now for feminism.

Behind the Headlines is a live series that dissects and debates some of the most prominent news stories of the time, hearing from the people making and shaping the news itself.
