Thandie Newton and Gloria Steinem

Event Details

For decades Gloria Steinem has helped women empower themselves. Now the legendary feminist meets Emmy and BAFTA winning actress and activist for an evening of wisdom and insight.

“I’m beginning to realise the pleasure of being a nothing-to-lose, take-no-sh*t older woman.” – Gloria Steinem

She is the most iconic American feminist of the 20th and 21st centuries: a journalist and activist whose career spanned the campaign trails of Bobby Kennedy and Hillary Clinton. As a co-founder of Ms. Magazine, Gloria Steinem demonstrated a unique gift for offering hope and inspiring action – and to this day her words continue to serve as a source of guidance, humour and unity for people around the world.

As the Emmy and BAFTA winning star of Westworld and The Line of Duty, alongside a cinematic slate as diverse as the Academy Award winning Crash and blockbuster Solo: a Star Wars Story, Thandie Newton is one of the most accomplished British actresses of her generation. As an activist and philanthropist, she has campaigned tirelessly to end violence against women and girls, and her TED talk exploring the role of selfhood and the bonds that connect us has been viewed over 3 million times.

In this exclusive conversation, Thandie will ask Gloria to reflect on her life and career at the forefront of the struggle for gender equality touching on themes from relationships to the patriarchy, travel to ageing, democracy to family.
