October 2009 Meeting - Feminism And Femininity

In our fabulous new loft style meeting space in Hackney, on 27th October 2009, Ellie Levinson, author of the recent book 'The Noughtie Girl's Guide to Feminism' is doing a reading for the Shoreditch Sisters W.I.  Ellie's book confirms that modern feminism doesn't negate fabulosity, and states that the modern woman can be glamorous, wear make-up etc.  
To celebrate the art of make-up, and the role it has played in celebrating feminine beauty in Britain over the last 50+ years, the experts from Pop and Pixi -homegrown make-up brand to the stars- will be demonstrating vintage eye-makeup techniques, and teaching the W.I members and guests the inside secrets!  Charlotte Willis of Fish in Soho will there too teaching 60's hairstyle techniques. With all these industry experts on hand, London's hippest W.I will most definitely have a make-over to remember!
Time: 8pm-10pm (arrive on time to avoid being turned away)
