Emily Ratajkowski in Conversation at Shameless! Festival
27th November 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
BSL Interpreted Event.
BSL Interpreters: Sharan Thind & Jo Taylor.
Author and actor Emily Ratajkowski joins WOW – Women of the World Founder Jude Kelly CBE at Shameless! Festival for an unmissable conversation on her new book My Body, a deeply honest and personal exploration of what it means to be a woman today.
Tickets are pay what you can, and the event will be BSL Interpreted and Captioned.
Join Emily for this very special evening as she reflects on her ground-breaking book, what it means to be a woman in a world that consumes, commodifies and violates women’s bodies, and the contempt that often accompanies taking back ownership of the narrative.
She will discuss the reach and power of feminist thought, the #MeToo movement, and the blurred lines between consent and abuse; a subject explored in her powerful book of essays My Body.
This candid and deeply courageous conversation will take place as part of the inaugural Shameless! Festival of Activism against Sexual Violence. Produced by SHaME and WOW – Women of the World, this much needed festival will revolutionise conversations around sexual violence; burst open inherited ideas of shame; and empower everyone to create a collective, transformative shift within society to say enough is enough, sexual violence must end.
This event will address sensitive and difficult subjects. Please use your discretion if attending with people under the age of 18.
The festival will adhere to BAC’s Covid policy and current government guidelines. We encourage all attendees to wear a mask during the event where possible. More information about precautions being taken will be shared with attendees in advance.
Shameless! Festival is produced by SHaME (Sexual Harms and Medical Encounters) and WOW – Women of the World, and is supported by The Wellcome Trust and Birkbeck, University of London.
Emily Ratajkowski is an acclaimed model and actress, an engaged political progressive, a formidable entrepreneur, a global social media phenomenon, and now, a writer. Rocketing to world fame at age twenty-one, Ratajkowski sparked both praise and furor with the provocative display of her body as an unapologetic statement of feminist empowerment. The subsequent evolution in her thinking about our culture’s commodification of women is the subject of this book.
