Embracing Motherhood in the Age of Feminism - Louise Perry

"John is joined by journalist and author, Louise Perry, for a conversation that unpacks the aftermath of the sexual revolution. In their discussion, Louise outlines both the technological and ideological foundations of the sexual revolution, showing its seismic, often overlooked impact over the last 70 years. They discuss everything from the birth control pill and the rise of surrogate mothers to the decline of romance and the feminist case for marriage. Louise Perry is a journalist and author based in London, UK. She is a columnist for UnHerd, a featured writer for the Daily Mail, and hosts Maiden Mother Matriarch, a podcast about sexual politics. Louise is the author of the landmark book, 'The Case Against the Sexual Revolution: A New Guide to Sex in the 21st Century,' published by Polity." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0:00:36 Introducing the guest 0:01:07 What is the sexual revolution 0:05:17 Sex can be both a force for good and evil 0:11:39 How has feminism evolved over time 0:16:30 Freedom at the expense of children 0:20:06 The debate around surrogacy is about only the rights and desires of adults 0:24:41 If you don’t care about children, you don’t care about the future 0:27:22 The case for having kids 0:31:12 Sex selective abortion and feminism 0:32:08 The psychological underpinnings of the west’s rejection of children 0:36:26 Men always regret not spending more time with their children 0:37:42 How we’ve strayed from the normal human lifecycle 0:40:21 What does the sexual revolution mean for the happiness of women? 0:44:28 The Me-Too movement and the problem with consent 0:46:14 How has the sexual revolution affected men? 0:49:58 Polygamy is the natural human state 0:52:52 Consent does not mean ‘good’ 0:56:13 The 1960s will be the seen as the new reformation 0:57:18 Convincing feminists to get married 1:01:29 Where has all the romance gone? 1:02:55 Social media and pornography 1:08:25 How have feminists responded to your work 1:11:31 Armed with permission 1:12:50 Advice for raising children -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Conversations feature John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, interviewing the world's foremost thought leaders about today's pressing social, cultural and political issues.
