The Future of Gender will be a leading-edge panel conveRSAtion between three speakers with a high investment in where gender is moving to; an issue which affects us all.

Please note this event is now cancelled and will be rearranged for a future date. 


Ugla Stefania Kristjonudottir Jonsdottir is an Icelandic trans.non-binary activist, writer and film-maker who works with their partner, Fox Fisher, to educate and inform on issues of gender and equality.

Mariam Crichton is a senior manager in the tech/digital world, which works with a strong masculine dominance. She is also a speaker on matters such as matriarchal power, an artist, meditator and student of Eastern philosophy. She has a young daughter.

Persia West is a meditation teacher, writer and speaker, who has recently introduced her podcast - with the support of the RSA and New Writing South - The Masks of Gender, which is the foundation for this event. All three speakers can be heard at themasksofgender.com.

After the panel, there will be an open discussion about where gender is going in this time of #metoo, women and power, trans visibility, and more. How can a real difference be made? What can we do?
