What is Love? and other questions…

To kick off the night, to get you talking to each other, to provoke inspiration for the main discussions we are beginning with an innovative icebreaker-Speed Debating.

We need around 10 questions, one for each table. We want these questions to come from you. Either comment here on the blog or email us at jointhemutiny@gmail.com with suggestions.

Please try to keep them clean! Lovely-thanks 😉

Nina Power confirmed for Love on Trial

We are thrilled to announce the first confirmed speaker for Love on Trial, Nina Power; activist, author, academic woman of wonderfulness.

Speaking in the first session Love for Sale Nina will present the case for a radically different world free from sexism, oppression & class. Thx Nina 🙂

Read a review of her book in the Guardian by Natalie Hanman: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/jan/16/one-dimensional-woman-natalie-hanman

‘She has harsh words, too, for upbeat “consumer”/”self-help” feminists such as Jessica Valenti, who subsume “the political and historical . . . under the imperative to feel better about oneself”. In this logic, “Almost everything turns out to be ‘feminist’ – shopping, pole-dancing, even eating chocolate” – and feminism is sold as the “latest must-have accessory”.’
