Battle Satellite - Not in front of the children: are our kids oversexualised? with Hephzibah Anderson, Zoe Williams and more

Tuesday 4th October 2011 6:30pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Everyone seems to agree that kids today 'grow up too quickly' but successive government reviews have struggled to answer why- or known what to do about it. Where does protecting innocence stop and moralistic censorship begin? Is the debate really just about children, or deeper adult uncertainties?
Speakers: Hephzibah Anderson (author, Chastened); Irma Kurtz (writer; broadcaster; agony aunt, Cosmopolitan); Dr Jan Macvarish (Centre for Health Service Studies, University of Kent, Canterbury); Cristina Odone (journalist; novelist; broadcaster); Zoe Williams (columnist, Guardian) + others TBC
Chair: David Bowden (Battle Satellite co-ordinator, Institute of Ideas)

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles

Tickets: £7.50/5.00 via www.battleofideas.org.uk or call 0207 269 9220
