Webinar – Dual Hate: Antisemitism, Misogyny, and What We Can Do About It
Thursday 2 December 2021, 9:00 am – 10:00 am GMT, online (UK)
Hatred does not always operate in silos. It spreads and overlaps – increasingly so in our digital age. In this session, Danny Stone will explain how antisemitism, racism against Jews, and misogyny connect and explain both the origins of these dual hatreds, the ways in which they manifest today, with a particular focus on online harm, and some suggestions as to what we might do about it all.
Speaker: Danny Stone MBE; Facilitator: Dame Louise Ellman DBE
