invites you to a philosophical discussion

based on a new book


The Second Sexism

by

Professor David Benetar

who will be in discussion with

John Maytham

Professor David Benetar of UCT’s Department of Philosophy, has written a book that has already generated much discussion and some controversy.
The Second Sexism considers whether sexism against men exists
and why we need to take it seriously.
This book draws attention to the ‘second sexism’, where it exists, how it works and what it looks like, and responds to those who would deny that it exists.

Challenging conventional ways of thinking, it examines controversial issues such as sex-based affirmative action, gender roles, and charges of anti-feminism. The book offers an academically rigorous argument in an accessible style, including the careful use of empirical data, and includes examples and engages in a discussion of how sex discrimination against men and boys
also undermines the cause for female equality.
