The Feminist Ball

The Feminist Ball

This Thursday March 20, the Feminist Press host its first "Feminist Ball" a fundraiser for this 40+ year old press devoted to international feminist thought and writing. On the bill are Mx. Justin Bond, Ana Matronic Brown Girls Burlesque, with emcee Michaela angela Davis from CNN.

If you are not familiar with what the Feminist Press is rolling out do peruse their homepage for titles such as: "Pussy Riot! A Punk Prayer for Freedom", which include letters from prison, songs, poems, and courtroom statements; "Testo Junkie Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Pharmacopornographic Era" by one of Vp's top 25 honorees Beatriz Preciado; "The Riot Grrrl Collection" the original manifestos, calls to arms, and rallying cries of the Riot Grrrl revolution; "Kissing the Sword, A Prison Memoir" by Shahrnush Parsipur a writer's harrowing tale of imprisonment in Iran. And that is just skimming the surface.

The FP has dedicated itself to publishing works by emerging and established writers from around the world and if that isn't enough of a reason to join them on Thursday night—that they throw a hell of a party should be.

Festivities begin at Joe's Pub at 6pm with a VIP hour with DJ set by Ana Matronic and doors open to the public at 7pm. FP cautions not to be late, and I will add buy your tickets now or you may not get in!
