About The Event
In I Don't, Ford explains how capitalist patriarchal structures need women to believe in marriage in order to maintain control over women's agency, ambitions and freedom.
This is her most incendiary and controversial book to date and with incisive attention to detail and razor sharp wit that has characterised her work, Ford examines a broad range of topics, including the patriarchal history of marriage; the insidious and centuries long marketing campaign pop culture has conducted in marriage's favour; the illusion feminist 'choice' in regard to taking men's names; the physical and social cost that comes with motherhood; and what a different kind of world could look like for women who were allowed to truly be free.
I Don't and her other books will be available for sale and signing on the night.
