If you haven’t read Fifty Shade of Feminism yet, pick it up. It’s a brilliant collection of women’s stories and thoughts on feminism today. Some are funny, some are depressing, some are profoundly inspiring and empowering. As part of the Dublin Writer’s Festival and to mark the book’s publication, co-editors Rachel Holmes and contributor Shami

Chakrabarti with theatre maker Louise Lowe and myself will explore the many shades of feminism today at the Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin this evening at 6pm.

 

Rachel Holmes is a writer, activist, programmer and teacher, andformer Director of Literature & Spoken Word at London’s Southbank Centre. Shami Chakrabarti is the Director of the civil liberties advocacy organisation, Liberty. Earlier this year she was named in BBC Radio 4’s list of the 100 most powerful women in the UK. Louise Lowe is a theatre director and playwright and Artistic Director of Anu Productions, whose recent productions include the acclaimed The Boys of Foley Street at the Dublin Theatre Festival.

Tickets are €10 (€8 concession) and you can purchase them here.
