CLICHÉ BASHING #5: TAKE IT EASY GIRL VS. MULTITASKING WOMAN

When was the last time you flexed your argumentation skills in an intellectual debate? If it’s been a while since you put your opinions to the test, head down to Drive. Volkswagen Group Forum next Thursday night (20.9.2018) for round #5 of Cliché Bashing. This debate series sees moderators Sissy Metzschke and Volker Wieprecht take on some of society’s thorniest issues, together with experts and the audience. The topic this round is “I’m (Im)perfect” — Take It Easy Girl vs. Multitasking Woman”. That’s to say, the pressure experienced by women to multitask their way to perfection in all areas of life — from building a career to raising a family and being the perfect partner. Where does this come from? Who’s perpetuating it? And how can we alleviate this oppressive double standard? These are amongst the questions that will be picked apart by a panel including mixed martial arts fighter Julia Dorny, actor and moderator Alina Merkau and founder of Yogibar, Helen Meyer. Naturally, the event welcomes all genders — round up your favorite conversationalists and register here for what promises to be a thought-provoking evening.
