WHO BROKE FEMINISM?
WEDNESDAY 4/09/19 - CAFE KINO - Doors open at 6:30pm
Is feminism broken? And how might we mend it? The term itself has an image problem at a time when the idea is needed more than ever. Why do people denounce the word while swearing by the very same phrases that so often follow the claim: ‘I’m not a feminist, but...’? This talk shatters some of the myths about feminism and answers the crucial question: ‘Why “feminism” and not “equality”?’
Professor Rees explores how women are systematically exploited and abused, from Kensington to Kigali, because they are women. She discusses ideas of ‘choice feminism’, and ‘feminism lite’, and considers the feminist continuum, demonstrating how the ‘personal’ is, in fact, decidedly ‘political’. This is an at times humorous talk with a serious message. It’s about the virtues of feminist anger; of acknowledging economic and cultural privilege; and of thinking globally, acting locally, and agitating politically.
SEX WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES AND AUTISM

QUEER SEX: A DISCUSSION WITH JUNO ROCHE
WEDNESDAY 3/07/19 - CAFE KINO - Doors open 6:30pm
Join transgender activist Juno Roche discussing her frank, funny and poignant book Queer Sex: A Trans and Non-Binary Guide to Intimacy, Pleasure and Relationships.
The book discusses sex, desire and dating with leading figures from the trans and non-binary community. Calling out prejudices and inspiring readers to explore their own concepts of intimacy and sexuality, the first-hand accounts celebrate the wonder and potential of trans bodies and push at the boundaries of how society views gender, sexuality and relationships. Empowering and necessary, this collection shows all trans people deserve to feel brave, beautiful and sexy.
VULVANOMICS: HOW WE TALK ABOUT VAGINAS
Sex Talks is incredibly excited and passionately grateful to be bringing Professor Emma L. E. Rees, Director of the Institute of Gender Studies and bestselling author to Bristol. When you were growing up did you talk about ‘froo froos’, ‘tuppences’, or ‘lady gardens’? And what does it mean that when we say ‘the C-word’ we’re conjuring up generations of shame and taboo? Lets find out together.
