Words* and stuff.

I am Chloe, I am 32.

*Woman On The Edge Of Time is a 1975 novel by Marge Piercy exploring a future utopian world pitted against the ravaging inequalities of the present. It had a big impact on me when I read it at university (then again so did the Killers’ Hot Fuss, so take that with a pinch of salt).

Utopian and dystopian literature allows us to imagine new worlds not just for larks but also as an antidote to the douchebags who say the world can’t change. Another great utopian feminist classic is Ursula Le Guin’s The Dispossessed. Read them and dream.

  2. Hello

    I am organizing a series of events in London at the beginning of April. It will aim to raise awareness on Objectification of women in mass media and promote young artists in the same time. Proceedings will go to support http://object.org.uk/ – a charity that deals with this issue.

    You can learn more about the project http://reallyevents.co.uk/ and our blog http://www.reallyevents.co.uk/blog/

    I will need some help with publicity and in fact – any ideas/suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am also looking for speakers for the evening, already have some lecturers from London Met. Psychology department, but anyone who is familiar with the issue is welcome to join.

    Let me know if that is something of interest.
