In The South

In ConveRSAtion with Andrea Cornwall and Persia West

Besi Besemar November 7, 2017

Navigating the Masculine World. Andrea Cornwall and Persia West aim to initiate a true balance of power between women and men.

Andrea and Persia will bring together insights from their many years of work around gender and power, from international development to transgender insight, diversity and equality to meditation and expanded awareness.

Persia says: “The masculine and the feminine, has shifted but not been equalised in our shared world.

“Inequality in gendered power is still the norm. Changing external structures – laws, conditions, policies, and so on – has made a great difference, but clearly more needs to be done.”

This conversation is the coming together of two radical minds, a meeting of years of experience from different yet complementary angles. It’s about a recognition of elemental feminine power, clarity in perception, and how the fulcrum of change lies within us all. It’s about women, men, and others better navigating the masculine structures and forces that many feel disempowered within.

There will be a panel discussion and an opportunity to ask questions and explore these important issues.

Persia West FRSA is an international transgender and LGBT+ activist, speaker on human rights and diversity, a meditation teacher, writer and speaker on gender, identity, and power.
