Maybe being a feminist isn’t quite what you thought it was…

We’re bringing AMAZING women together to celebrate the launch of the much anticipated Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies) to Salford and London this October.

In a discussion that aims to bridge the gap between the feminist hashtags and scholarly texts and to debunk the myths that surround feminism - Curator of the book and co-founder of the Pink Protest Scarlett Curtis will be in London and Salford this October. Joining her in London will be Liv Little, founding editor-in-chief of Gal-Dem; Charlie Craggs, trans activist and founder of award winning national campaign Nail Transphobia. In Salford will be; Amy Trigg, who appears in Mamma Mia! Here we go again; 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 will be in both London and Salford. They will all offer personal stories about what the F-word means to them.

Don’t miss out on what 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.

Curated by Scarlett Curtis and described by Reese Witherspoon as "Brilliant, hysterical, truthful and real.” Feminist’s Don’t Wear Pink (And Other Lies) will be published on 4th October 2018. Take the opportunity to be one of the first to get your hands on a copy of the book, for almost half-price (RRP 12.99) by purchasing tickets for this event. Books will be available for collection from the on-site bookshop on the night.

All panellists will be signing copies of the book after the event.
