Goldsmiths Ladyfest

Goldsmiths’ student union (in London) is holding another Ladyfest! I don’t have very many details I’m afraid, just this flyer – click below to see full-scale version, which I found via Obesity Timebomb. It’s taking place over 22-26 February.

UPDATE: Goldsmiths Ladyfest has a Facebook group as well!

Charlotte Cooper from OT is doing a talk on why she is a fat activist, and NUS women’s officer Liv Bailey has a workshop on “women and direct action”.

There’s also a Ladyfest Band Night.
