Lean Out by Dawn Foster
Lean Out by Dawn Foster

In 'Lean Out,' acclaimed journalist Dawn Foster unpicks how the purportedly feminist message of Sheryl Sandberg’s 'Lean In' neatly exempts patriarchy, capitalism and business from any responsibility for changing the position of women in contemporary culture. It looks at the rise of a corporate ‘1% feminism’, and at how feminism has been defanged and depoliticised at a time when women have borne the brunt of the financial crash and the gap between rich and poor is widening faster than ever.

Dawn will be in conversation with Ash Sarkar.
