Shameless! Festival of Activism Against Sexual Violence, produced by SHaME and WOW – Women of the World
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.
About Emily Ratajkowski
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.
