Gender inequality blights first and developing worlds, rich and poor women's health, wealth, education, representation, opportunity and security everywhere.

Shadow Attorney General, Shami Chakrabarti, shows that gender injustice is an ancient and continuing wrong that is millennial in duration, and global in reach.

Chakrabarti visits the RSA to argue that we have not yet done enough to create a more equal world: one where women and men share power, responsibility and opportunity. One that is potentially happier and more peaceful. One where no life is wasted, and everyone has a chance to fulfil their potential. Instead, we've been playing around at the edges, instead of instituting radical change.

From the disparity in the number of births to issues of schooling, work, ownership, faith, political representation and international diplomacy, Chakrabarti will outline what needs fixing and makes clear, inspiring proposals about what we do next, putting women's rights at the centre of the progressive political agenda.
