The Headrow, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 3AD

What do seatbelts, life jackets and antibiotics have in common? They were originally designed for white men. Whether through oversight or intention, many everyday solutions and institutions were built around the needs of cis white men. What changes need to happen so that the needs of everyone are better considered? Hosted by Amrou Al-Kadhi, join us as we learn from activists, writers and experts including Caroline Criado-Perez, Hashi Mohamed and Gina Martin, to discuss the conditionality of the everyday structures we take for granted, and the extraordinary people struggling for equality.
