The feminist book club joins national debate on burlesque

The book club was contacted by final year film student Michaela Roy to discuss burlesque and feminism. Michelle agreed to take part in the documentary, discussing her view of middle class validation of burlesque as an empowering performance for women. The original article is here http://wp.me/p2GeiX-3S.

The documentary is an interesting look at burlesque as experienced by performers, though both Michaela and Michelle lamented the lack of diversity in performers in the UK.

Thank you to everyone that took part and we’d love to know what you think.
