Extra lunchtime sessions for young women at FiLiA!

We're delighted to say that there are going to be two additional sessions at FiLiA 2017 over the lunch break with young women in mind! 

Session 1: Pornography and Young Women's Sexuality - How Porn Culture affects me

TIGER (Teaching Individuals Gender Equality and Respect) is a Bristol based workers cooperative who work with young people to provide education on topics related to gender equality. In this session, we will be exploring a range of issues related to mainstream pornography and the impact this has on young women and their partners lives. We will be asking questions such as - who is porn made for and who does it represent? What does it teach us about how and why we have sex and the impact this might have on our ability to form healthy relationships with ourselves and others? 

Session 2: Body Image

TIGER (Teaching Individuals Gender Equality and Respect) is a Bristol based workers cooperative who work with young people to provide education on topics related to gender equality. In this session we will be discussing body image. This is a huge topic for young people today who live in media saturated environments, which convey multiple and often contradictory messages about how we should look and how we should feel about this. In this session we will be aiming to create an open and supportive environment from which to begin to explore these ideas as a group.
