Here’s the details...
Sat, 11 May 2019
12:30 – 14:45 BST
The very worst of Lesbian erasure is upon us as our society embraces the mutilation of young lesbian bodies with chemicals and surgeries. How did we get here and how can we stop it?
Our panel is chaired by
Anne Ruzlyo, an Ex prison officer
Our panellists are:
Sheila Jeffreys: a lesbian feminist writer and activist. She taught sexual politics at the University of Melbourne, where she is now a professorial fellow, before retiring to the UK in 2015. She is the author of 10 books, and her latest is The Lesbian Revolution: lesbian feminism in the UK 1970-1990, 2018.
Julia Long: a lesbian - one of the old-fashioned kinds that doesn’t have a penis. She has worked in education, local government, academia and the women’s sector, and is currently a researcher in the field of male violence against women. Julia is a long-time Lesbian Feminist activist and her book Anti-Porn: The Resurgence of Anti-Pornography Feminism was published in 2012 by Zed Books. She is currently writing a book on how men have managed to convince so many people – including most ‘gender critical feminists’ - that there is such a thing as ‘transgenderism’. Julia has the great good fortune to live in Lesbian Feminist community and wants all women to know that this is possible. Her hobbies include sitting on chairs, eating pizza and naming men as men.
Dovile Lapinskaite: graduate in politics, philosophy and history of art, lesbian radical feminist, activist and independent artists.
Julia Beck: a writer and organizer from Baltimore, Maryland. She helps produce a monthly radio broadcast for Women's Liberation Radio News. Last year, she represented lesbians at Baltimore Pride and on the Law and Policy Committee of Baltimore City's LGBTQ Commission. She is currently at the fore of the fight for women's rights in the USA.

Just bought my ticket - I happened to be in central london that day anyway, so very convenient timing. Thanks Posie! Really looking forward to it

Here’s a link for tickets. Btw I have nothing to do with the organisation of this, but I saw it on Posie’s FB feed and I can’t actually go so decided to do my bit and share it on here!

Julia Long - "Her hobbies include sitting on chairs, eating pizza and naming men as men".
Gosh, I hope the Met coppers are on standby that night. All overtime cancelled surely.
Maybe bring the army in?

Too bad Boris’s water cannons got sold for scrap...

I’d love to go but it’s too far away.

"She is currently writing a book on how men have managed to convince so many people – including most ‘gender critical feminists’ - that there is such a thing as ‘transgenderism’"
This sounds promising.

I may have purchased a ticket...

Fantastic line up!
Cleanlines · 03/04/2019 22:54
What a line-up! I would give my eye teeth to go to this event though unfortunately it's hundreds of miles away. Those brilliant speakers should be broadcasted to the government. Looking forward to the YouTube.

What treats do you get with the £25 ticket?
GlorianaCervixia · 04/04/2019 04:16
I didn’t know Julia Long is writing a book. I hope she has a publisher for it because that would be an auto buy for me. I think she’s fantastic at laying out arguments in a cool-headed way.

Thanks, but I meant other than on the booking website
MsJeminaPuddleduck · 06/04/2019 20:07
This sounds great too and would love to hear from Julia Long so soon after the Accenture fiasco on her take and what's happened since
MsJeminaPuddleduck · 06/04/2019 20:10
Hipsterfun - I went to one they did in Barnstaple, N Devon and was a bit worried for similar reasons - I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere apart from the booking site and Barnstaple seemed a bit random etc but it was all fine (and totally worth it)
