What About The Men? (Mansplaining Masculinity): a talk by Dave Pickering

  • The Attic at The Railway Inn 3 Saint Paul's Hill Winchester, England, SO22 5AE United Kingdom (map)

Dave Pickering takes us on a personal journey through gender as he tries to explain masculinity both to you and to himself. Part true storytelling, part TED talk and part apology, the show looks at how the patriarchy hurts men too; how the patriarchy has hurt him, and how he has hurt people because of patriarchy.

Dave Pickering is a podcaster and storyteller. His podcast Getting Better Acquainted won a British Podcast Awards in 2017, and featured on BBC Radio 4's In Pod We Trust and BBC Radio 5 live’s Required Listening. It has also been recommended by The GuardianTime Out London and the Financial Times. He is adapting his talk into a book with Unbound (release tbc).

In this talk, after drawing on an anonymous survey of 1000 men, feminist theory, internet memes and his life experience, Dave will explain the conclusions he has come to after 36 years of trying to make peace with being a man.

1 hour talk, followed by opportunity for audience questions
