Ian Douglas

Ian Douglas is the male cuckoo in the Telegraph Wonder Women nest. He writes about being the father of a daughter and the ways in which children are expected to behave. To avoid writing about his actual daughter and invading her privacy in a way that she’ll grow up to hate him for, he leans heavily on the work of child development scientists to give him things to say about all children without just making it all up.

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
