Alan Bissett

Listen in pop-out player

In the 1990s, author Alan Bissett was a lad and women were 'birds'.

In a frank and personal account, Alan talks about why he turned to the work of the late American radical feminist Andrea Dworkin after becoming concerned over his use of internet pornography.

He dissects elements of what he describes as our "sex saturated culture" and argues that men need to start engaging with feminism for the good of all.
Four Thought is a series of talks which combine new ideas and personal stories.

Recorded during the Edinburgh festival, speakers explain their thinking on the trends and ideas in culture and society in front of a live audience.

Producer: Caitlin Smith.
