Autumn Talking

Film feminism is a hot topic this autumn, with the release of SUFFRAGETTE, the Onwards and Outwards touring season of contemporary British women's indie cinema, which I blogged about for the ICA, and - of course - the November release of POLITICAL ANIMALS: THE NEW FEMINIST CINEMA. Launch details to come (and they will be as fabulous as the cover), but in the run-up, I'll be panelling, chairing & talking all over...
