There’s a lot of talk about intersectionality and how to do it. I’m particularly drawn to this article because it’s about centring an experience (which isn’t mine) and like my conclusions in 2016 that we need to redesign the suit (ie default male perspective) it’s time to consider redesigning the table if the table is white, middle-class European/colonial cultural defaults….

This is the latest post by my friend who has been chronicling his dealings with the DWP . Philip is very frank and some of what he writes about can be distressing. I share with him the conviction that one of the few ways people in his situation have of tackling a system that no longer prioritises the welfare of the people it’s designed to … Continue reading Not Being Me — Philip Green, Blogging & Writing.

I’ll be speaking at the University of Arts London’s day on women in arts on 2nd March. This is good prepatory reading. by Dr. Jami Rogers, University of Warwick Dominic Cavendish can rest assured: he will not lose the opportunity to see his favourite (white) male actors in leading Shakespearean roles.
