Ayesha Hazarika: Girl On Girl
Friday 19 October
The Fight For Feminism
Post #MeToo, women have finally united… for a good old-fashioned bitch fight! What’s happened to feminism? Is it too posh? Too white? When did Germaine Greer become Richard Littlejohn? And WTF does any of this have to do with Piers Morgan? Broadcaster and former political adviser, Ayesha, takes us through the fight for feminism.
Ex-political adviser, regular news pundit on Sky, BBC, CNN & LBC and award-winning stand-up, Ayesha Hazarika MBE analyses the fight for feminism with humour and honesty, and asks – are sisters doing it to themselves? Girl on Girl – The Fight for Feminism is Ayesha’s second tour of the UK, following her debut State of the Nation tour last year.
Ayesha started her career as a stand-up comedian playing clubs across the country. She then took what she thought was a natural diversion into the Labour Party as a Special Adviser working for Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband.
Since leaving front line politics Ayesha continues to be a regular columnist in the Evening Standard and Grazia and can often be found on CNN and Sky. She has made numerous guest appearances on television and radio, including Matt Forde’s Unspun (Dave), as well as Good Morning Britain (ITV 1), The Andrew Marr Show (BBC1), Newsnight (BBC2), The Agenda (ITV), BBC Radio 4’s Today, as well as the extremely popular podcast, The Guilty Feminist.
“Hazarika is terrific company - relaxed, mischievous and with a mind like a steel trap…go and see what she has to say.” ★★★★ The Scotsman
“Extremely funny…sharp and on the money, she is never cruel and manages to create a world I never thought possible. Catch her if you can.”
John Crace, The Guardian April 2017
