Here’s the details...

Sat, 11 May 2019
12:30 – 14:45 BST
Location


Central London
London

Description
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.
There will be a bounty of merchandise to purchase, please bring cash.
We will be live streaming on Posie Parker Youtube channel.
The venue supply unlimited water and will be announced a few hours before the event.
If you are experiencing financial difficulties please contact [email protected] and we may be able to offer a reduced ticket price.

I’m going to this!!! I hope I’ll meet some great new friends, and I’m sure plenty of my old ones will be there, too. Feminism today is great, there are so many events going on, almost every weekend!

Venue has been released by email, and I’m so excited! It’s in one and a half hours!!! I’m so glad I decided to come... but the Live Streams at Posie’s events are always great, if you aren’t coming, in person. Squeeee!

I haven't got the email! Not in junk folders either. I'm a genuine ticket holder. I realise Posie won't be in email. What shall I do?

Heads up Joss Prior (Hi Joss) is taking screenshots of what you say and posting it on Twitter with snarky comments. He is coming across as nasty, bitter and rather pathetic.
