Sticky Labels: Women and the Mental Health System

As part of WOW – Women of the World Festival Bobby Baker leads a panel investigating why women have been branded everything from ‘witches’ to ‘morally insane'.

There is a long history of women – particularly those who don’t conform to social norms – being given derogatory labels.

Join this discussion to explore the politics of women and mental health, and the misogyny within the contemporary psychiatric diagnostic framework.

Join Bobby Baker, and a panel of specialists by both profession and experience, to consider strategies of survival, rebellion and resilience.More speakers to be announced.

Date: Fri 6 March 2020

Time: 3:30pm

Location: Royal Festival Hall, Southbank
