In 2018 conversations about women’s rights and representation have gotten more attention.  Movements like #metoo have gained momentum, as well as conversations about women in government and film.  The next café conversation will be a chance to talk about these movements and how (or if?) they fit in with feminism.  Are these movements still feminist or are they something different?  Has feminism re-branded? Everyone is welcome to join in a discussion about feminism.  Come share your views.

May 2018 Café Conversation – Politeness

Standard

Our next Café Conversation will be Friday 4 May 2018 and we will be discussing: Politeness

Being polite can look different across, society, gender, and culture.  What does politeness look like to you?  Is politeness still something we teach and talk about or has it become an old fashioned idea?  Does politeness stop us from saying what we really mean?  Let’s have a (polite) conversation about it.
