Funny how some people try to edit out the things they don’t like. The YouTube link is what happened leading upto the so-called “full 19 minute video” – can someone please provide a transcript, ‘cos all I hear is screaming and shouting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqwU2t1q620&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Keeping an eye on this one, I wonder if the University we’re told the exact nature of the conference.
Congrats to Tumblr, for recognising bigots when you see them.
I’m not sure this conference actually took places, conferences normally release minutes.
London Radical Feminist Conference, July 2012
Statement from organisers
This July saw radical feminists from across the globe converge in London for the first women-only, radical feminist conference in 25 years.
What happened was important, urgent and necessary. Women of all ages and from many different backgrounds connected, discussed and organised, and the result was truly electrifying.
The agenda of the conference was shaped by some of the most significant issues affecting women today, with a particular focus on male violence against women and girls in all its forms.
Keynote speakers were Professor Sheila Jeffreys and Gail Dines. Panel sessions and workshops addressed topics including male violence against women and girls; prostitution; disability and women’s oppression; lesbian feminism, women-only organising and feminist culture; sharing knowledge across feminist generations; and challenging misogyny, along with several sessions focusing on organising. Some of the speeches may become available at a later time.

A few years ago the idea of that would’ve been unthinkable, which really shows how far the sport has come in such a short space of time. While it is still very much a minority sport, the amount of both participants and supporters is growing rapidly.We’ve even had a few people tell us we’ve inspired them to try weightlifting, which means the absolute world to us.
At the risk of sounding slightly up myself, I’d love…

How many more people need to die America before you do something about your weapons of mass destruction? Nut jobs with guns. I suppose gunmen who go on the rampage don’t have a backyard full of oil though.
