Hello

We're pleased to announce a Zoom chat with feminist journalist and writer Julie Bindel about her new book Feminism is For Women.

Julie will be chatting with Justine about the book and answering your questions on 13th October from 8 to 9pm, and you can book your place now by registering for free here.

Please register with the email associated with your Mumsnet account - or you will not be able to join.

Please note 1 If you join the Zoomchat, your camera will be turned off by default. Your screen name might be visible, so consider whether you’re happy to use your RL name or want to use your MN posting name, or something else entirely.

Please note 2 We can only take questions from Zoomchat attendees live on the night

Thanks
MNHQ

Zoom novice here - is it easy enough to change how your name appears to other participants? I just want to create one for this zoom chat as I value my anonymity.

Brilliant. Let's hope MNHQ don't censor.

They're asking for questions in advance which can be sensible for management.

I'd still like to know: will Julie's language be restricted, or will she be given the courtesy of being allowed to speak clearly and unambiguously?

Will it be recorded so we can watch it later or live only?

Helen Joyce's Zoom was recorded but I think the recordings are only available to Premium members.

Looks like I was wrong about this above: They're asking for questions in advance which can be sensible for management as this says they're only take questions on the night.

Does she think she undermines the feminist cause by saying Islamophobic things?

Really looking forward to this.

The Zoom chat with Helen Joyce was fantastic and I'm sure this will be just as inspiring.

You might have missed the OP, but you can only ask questions in the zoom meeting, on the night...

Are you mistaking her for Julie Burchill...?

Not all women named Julie with a B- surname are Julie Burchill.

[quote Bibbetyboo]Then again, leans quite heavily on quite a few tropes in some of her writing. unherd.com/2018/04/many-left-wing-progressives-protest-pope-silent-islams-totalitarian-tendencies-victims-cowardice-overwhelmingly-women/?=frpo?=newuser[/quote]
You find out you're thinking of the wrong person. Nonetheless, within 10 mins, you find an article that persuades you that your critical analysis of what you term "a few tropes* means that you were actually right in your original misattributed accusation? Is that your current position?
