This time we’re joined by Laura Jackson, an actor and feminist playwright. She discusses her play ‘Handle It’ and its feminist themes, art and social change, nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence being shared without her consent, the feminist campaign against sexist “pick up artist” Julien Blanc, and Tracy Spicer’s Ted Talk ‘The Lady Stripped Bare’. You can find out more about the play by checking out the Facebook event page and you can buy tickets here. If you can’t make it along to the play, you can still support the project by donating to its Pozible campaign. We also encourage people to have a look at Laura’s website, as well as following her on Twitter @LaurayJackson and liking her Facebook page.
