All About Women was built on the success of our Ideas at the House event The F-Word, which took place in 2012. Over 4000 tickets were sold to sessions with Germaine Greer, Naomi Wolf and a firecracker panel discussion.
In 2013 All About Women was a buzzing day of discussion and debate with major international guests discussing everything from parenting and sex to the state of the world. The day concluded with a lively debate on the topic Men Can’t be Feminists and a provocative discussion M is for Misogyny.
