Belated TOPIC ANNOUNCEMENT!
THIS WEEK: Racism and Feminism
- A topic that’s been discussed a lot recently following Caitlin Moran’s Twitter remarks as pictured in the attached image. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
NEXT WEEK: Breast cancer awareness and pinkwashing
- Slight change of plan, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month we wanted to fit this discussion in before the month is out.
THE WEEK AFTER: Sexism in Halloween costumes
- Previously planned for the week before, we’ll now be discussing this during Halloween week itself.
As ever if you’d like to make a guest video on these or any other topic then click here for more info how http://bit.ly/PiiGZv and please let us know!
