I will soon be moving house and so, being a bit of a hoarder, need to have a bit of a clear out of all the stuff I have acquired over the last five and a half years. As I waded through the piles of books that I hadn’t read or wouldn’t read again, I realised that some of visitors to my blog might be interested in them and so I have decided to run a few prize draws. Seeing as today is Friday, I thought I’d start with a little Feminism Friday competition. As you can see from the photo, this prize contains the rather controversial “The Noughtie Girl’s Guide to Feminism” by Ellie Levenson. Ideal for someone who is unsure whether or not they are a feminist, or someone who is 100% sure and likes getting angry about stuff! Next up is the fantastic Suffragette and Women’s War memerobilia packs that I bought from the National Portrait gallery shop back in October, plus a button badge from the sadly now defunct feminist magazine Subtext. I have also included an interesting book that I got from a professor who was clearing out her office at the last university I worked at. It was published in the early 80s and is called “Women’s Work, Men’s Work: The Ambivalence of Equality” by Virginia Novarra. Hopefully it’s good but I have to admit that it’s one of the ones that was on my unread pile!
If you are interested in winning this little pile of feminist fun, just leave a comment below before midnight on Thursday. I shall put every commenter’s name in a hat and will anounce the winner next Friday. Good luck!
