Why I Call Myself a Feminist (2015 Event)

In this event entitled “a Rally, a Rant, a Story, a Song, a Protest, a Poem”, women – and men – take to the mike for five minutes each to tell us why they call themselves feminists. Authors Val McDermid, Christopher Brookmyre, Elif Shafak and Andrew O’Hagan; activists Emma Laurie and Caroline Criado-Perez; stand-up comic Nish Kumar; playwright Jo Clifford; and poets Robin Robertson and Natasha Kanapé Fontaine make a stand. Recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
