Is The Pivot to Freelance a Feminist Issue?
A recent debate on Twitter, led by Lucy Pasha-Robinson, opinion editor at HuffPost, sought to find answers to an increase in female journalists going freelance, drawing responses from a wide variety of writers and editors. From family life to career advancement, the reasons given by women for going freelance are — generally speaking — multi-factoral, but a desire to have more control over their own work/life balance and earning potential appear to be a common thread.

It’s time to bring this debate to life. Join FJ&Co’s founder, Anna Codrea-Rado, and special guests for a panel discussion on the increased number of female journos joining the freelance workforce in recent years. Is this becoming a feminist issue? Should this move be celebrated? Or is it an indicator that in the existing model, the only way to achieve true equality at work is for women to leave traditional employment in their thousands? Speakers include: Josie Cox, Freelance Journalist (Raconteur, The Guardian, WSJ); Coco Khan, Columnist (Guardian Weekend); Lucy Pasha-Robinson, Opinion Editor (The Huff Post).
The event is hosted by FJ&Co on 23 October at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch. Tickets and more information can be found here

It’s time to hone your general knowledge, sharpen up your inter-team competitive spirit and book your team of six – or a smaller group and we’ll make up composite tables where necessary. Tickets cost just £28 + VAT, or £150 + VAT for a table of six.
