"(Typical Girls) Don’t Create, Don’t Rebel”: An evening of music, poetry and spoken word written and performed by rebellious women of all ages
Thursday 9 March
Doors/bar open from 6:30pm, performances from 7pm-9pm.
The Lounge, Student Union, King Alfred Campus, University of Winchester, Sparkford Road, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 4NR
In 1978 all-female punk group The Slits released their self-penned single Typical Girls, in which they took an ironic look at perceptions of femininity.
Nearly 40 years later, we ask the question does the image of a 'typical' woman or girl still prevail? Who, or what, is a 'typical' woman? What does she do, think and feel? What does she have to say? And, more importantly, are we listening?
As part of a series of events on campus to mark International Women's Day, an evening of song, music, spoken word and storytelling is being held to showcase the voices of female performers, including staff and students at the University of Winchester. Come along and hear female writers, actors and musicians share their creative responses to the issues and ideas that matter to them at an event that, in the spirit of International Women's Day, will ‘provide a specific and designated moment to identify and celebrate the successful achievements of women’.
