Caitlin Kunkel, Brooke Preston, Fiona Taylor, and Carrie Wittmer - New Erotica for Feminists: Satirical Fantasies of Love, Lust, and Equal Pay — in conversation with Alexandra Petri — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 18, 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In a feminist fantasy, catcalls might still exist—but the construction worker would be a reader eager to get into a woman’s books. Taking some of the usual scenarios—older men and younger women, the male boss chasing the female underling—the authors spin out new plots that expose and revise old power dynamics.  Expanding on their McSweeney’s website article of the same title—which ran in February and is still the site’s most-read piece of the year to date—the creators of The Belladonna, a platform for women and other marginalized genders, deploy a searing satire that’s both funny and arousing, designed to provoke and to inspire action. Kunkel, Preston, Taylor, and Wittmer will be in conversation with Washington Post columnist Alexandra Petri.
