A Practical Guide to Achieving Gender Equality in Theatre by Lucy Kerbel

This is a book about why change matters, its benefits – artistic, commercial, ethical and social – and how, with everyone’s help, we can actually achieve it. From small shifts, such as how you run your meetings, to rethinking concepts as huge as the art we inherit, how we attribute excellence, and the constraints we unwittingly pass on to the next generation, there are things we can all do to bring about change.

This book has an incredibly useful chapter relating specifically to young people and the youth theatre/youth drama sector. In this book, you’ll find provocations to help you consider your current practices and their effects, challenge unconscious biases and identify opportunities for change, plus strategies and tools to help you decide where best to focus your efforts, to convince others why change matters, and to achieve meaningful, lasting success.
