The feminist festival returns to the capital
After the success of last year’s month-long lady-focused extravaganza, Edinburgh’s own feminist festival has gone for a more boutique look this year in the lead up to the Gude Cause event (look out for our feature next issue).
Still, they’re packing a whole lot of power into a weekend: a comedy night with the very ladylike Sian Bevan on Thursday, workshops and a gig featuring some splendid and exciting local female artists on Saturday, a secret and reputedly awesome movie night at Brass Monkey on Sunday, and, most excitingly, a very rare chance to catch the brilliant San Franciscan performance art and poetry collective Sister Spit, headed up by Michelle Tea, on Friday night.
