Catherine Mayer

This talk blends Catherine Mayer’s insights from her years as a journalist, latterly as Editor at Large for TIME magazine, with hilarious accounts of the process of forming the Women’s Equality Party and deep research into the global reality of gender inequality. But her acclaimed book Attack of the Fifty Foot Women doesn’t just set out the mechanisms holding women back and how much women contribute despite these hindrances to every area of life. Mayer also takes us on a journey to a truly gender balanced society—a place that she calls “Equalia”—and shows us how to get there. Catherine Mayer is the author of Amortality: The Pleasures and Perils of Living Agelessly and the Sunday Times bestselling biography of Prince Charles Charles: The Heart of a King. In 2015 she co-founded the Women’s Equality Party with Sandi Toksvig.
