Well after today’s flurry of videos it’s time for a quick TOPIC ANNOUNCEMENT!
THIS WEEK: LGBT/Queer Feminism - One of the top voted topics from our recent Facebook poll!
NEXT WEEK: Racism and Feminism - There’s been a bit of a storm recently after popular feminist Caitlin Moran Tweeted that she “couldn’t give a shit” about the lack of racially diverse representation in Lena Dunham’s TV show “Girls”, so we thought we’d talk about just that.
THE WEEK AFTER: Sexism in Halloween costumes. - It’s nearly Halloween, there’s a lot of awful sexism surrounding fancy dress costumes, so that’s that really.
As ever if you’d like to make a guest video on these or any other topic then click here for more info how and please let us know! - Becca x
