      You know the song is nice but don’t you wish that the money had gone into something, I don’t know, tangible or real. There is such a long way to go especially in the Global South we stand in solidarity with those women – where feminism is a very, very real thing, people in the west might think that feminism has already achieved its aims (which we haven’t) – and of course we have had a large measure of success – but our sisters in the south have to deal with the very real oppression, exploitation, physical harm and sadly sometimes death on a daily basis – feminism for them is everything and we cannot forget that.

    I was going to go to event, but youngest sprained arm yesterday, so instead i wrote about something that had been bothering me for a while, the erasure of working class women from some feminist narratives. Now i want to write the book!

    But a post by the co author of the blog has made me smile hugely, cos allies are awesome and we need more men like this

    And since we are getting musical,

    Happy International Womens Day all
