The director Virginie Despentes is speaking at the ICA in London next year, about her new book which argues, from her experience working in porn and prostitution, that “feminism is needed to rip away the trappings of femininity in a society obsessed with consumption and packaging”.

And here’s the full description:

Notorious for her rape-revenge novel and film Baise-Moi, Virginie Despentes is at the ICA to present ideas from her new book King Kong Theory. A trenchant new defence of feminism, shaped by her experiences in the porn and prostitution industries, the book argues that feminism is needed to rip away the trappings of femininity in a society obsessed with consumption and packaging. Despentes will be in conversation with Zoe Williams, columnist at The Guardian.
