Maybe being a feminist isn’t quite what you thought it was…
Five AMAZING women are coming together to celebrate the launch of the much anticipated book, Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies) at The Lowry in Salford on Wednesday 3rd October.
The woman joining the discussion are journalist, activist and blogger, Scarlett Curtis, who has curated the book and is co-founder of the Pink Protest, alongside Amy Trigg. Amy is an actor who appears in the recently released film, Mamma Mia! Here we go again. They are joined by Grace Campbell, activist and stand-up comedian; Sharmadean Reid, entrepreneur and founder of WAH nails and Deborah Francis-White, host of the hit podcast The Guilty Feminist. The evening aims to bridge the gap between the feminist hashtags and scholarly texts and to debunk the myths that surround feminism. The women will offer personal stories about what the F-word means to them.
This event will no doubt be a rich and lively discussion around navigating being a woman in today’s society, why we need to bang the drum for feminism and why feminists really do wear pink.
The book, which was described by Reese Witherspoon as “Brilliant, hysterical, truthful and real”, Feminist’s Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies) will be published by Penguin on 4th October 2018.
£1 of each ticket will go to Girl Up, a global leadership development initiative, positioning girls to be leaders in the movement for gender equality.
