Nelufar talks to the author of “I Hate Men” and a roundtable of men about “lad culture,” feminism, and gender equality.
Host Nelufar Hedayat looks at the evolution of masculinity and what—if any—role men have in within the feminist movements. First she hears from British comedian David Baddiel about how he went from being a “lad” comic to someone acutely aware of gender dynamics.
Then, Nelufar speaks with French writer and activist Pauline Harmange, who argues that modern men have no place in feminism.
Finally, she convenes a roundtable of men from around the globe to hear their perspectives on how to change male culture to be more inclusive and how men can fight for gender equality. Roundtable guests include Mazin Jamal, Satchit Puranik, and Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic.
About Course Correction: [video width="1920" height="1080" mp4="https://foreignpolicy.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Course_Correction_Trailer.mp4" poster="https://foreignpolicy.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Course_Correction_Trailer.jpg"][/video] The UN estimates that there are 84 million forcibly displaced people around the world, and nearly 27 million of those are considered refugees. These numbers are the highest they have ever been. For season three of Course Correction, Doha Debates is partnering with UNHCR, the United Nations refugee agency, to illuminate all aspects of the refugee experience. Over the course of six episodes, host Nelufar Hedayat will speak with refugees and other forcibly displaced persons and hear their stories—from the moment they leave their homes to their eventual resettlement or return, detailing arduous journeys that can sometimes last years or even decades. We’ll examine the challenges that stateless people face, the work being done to assist them, and the ways in which the global community can provide further support and solutions. See All Episodes
