Shami Chakrabarti on Sisterhood

Join human rights campaigner Shami Chakrabarti for an urgently needed sermon on why women still need equality and how they can finally achieve it.

Inequality between men and women is worldwide in scale, has been constant across history and across cultures. Without a radical approach to rethinking the role of women in society, we may find ourselves condemned to repeat centuries of injustice and self-defeating bias. For if we can achieve greater parity between genders, the potential reward for humanity stands to be profound: it could help bring about levels of peace, prosperity, sustainability and general human happiness yet to be realised in a globalised society.

Join Shami Chakrabarti to discover a powerful blueprint for the future that everyone needs to hear – regardless of their gender.
