Thursday Lates Wonder Women Takeover
Venue: The Whitworth Art Gallery,
Manchester, M15 6ER
6.30pm – 7.30pm
Regarding Women - Portrait Gallery
Amid a collection of art works dominated by the male perspective, three writers present new work on women looking at themselves, interrogating the way they are depicted, and considering what it is to be a woman in the world. Kate Feld, Rosie Garland and Lara Williams will perform fiction, lyric essay and poetry in an event specially produced for Wonder Women.
This event is part of Wonder Women, Manchester's annual feminist festival. From 3-13 March 2016, we celebrate the women's movement born in our city through film, art, music, walking tours, gallery takeovers, comedy and debate, asking how far we've come in 100 years – and how far we have yet to go.
