Katherine Ormerod explains Why Social Media is Ruining Your Life at Emirates Airline Festival of Literature

For any woman who has ever looked at her Instagram feed and thought, 'Who are these women, and how the hell do they do it?'

The internet has set destructive standards of flawlessness and comparison.

Katherine Ormerod, journalist and social media mogul, explodes our social-media-addled ideas about body image, money, relationships, motherhood, careers, politics and more and gives us the tools we need to control our own online lives, rather than being controlled by them.

This session was recorded at Emirates Airline Festival of Literature in 2019.
