UK Feminista

It's great that there's a new campaigning organisation in the UK, however, two (personal) things:

  1. Basing the launch in London is great if you live down there, but, ya know, it isn't actually the centre of the universe.
  2. Having it plugged on a feminist website 4 days before the launch makes it highly difficult to arrange getting there if you DON'T live in London.

That's all.

  1. The website isn't exactly complete - try clicking on any of the links next to the rolling picture (Self Publishing & Liberation, etc.) - none of the text links work, and if you click on the picture, it'll take you to the launch announcement, regardless of whether that's showing at that moment or not.

    I couldn't help noticing that the Wales event just happened to be in Cardiff. (I studied in Aberystwyth, and it's even harder to get to Cardiff from mid- or north Wales than it is to get to London from Birmingham.)

  2. Thanks Matthew, I'm aware of that, but I was referring to the launch of the organisation because it was highlighted on The F word, not specifically to the events listed on the website.

  3. I noticed that too, Liz. Very irritating! I live in London but four days is not very much notice for ANYTHING when it comes to organising childcare. *grumble grumble*
