Just a quick note to let you know that the next London Feminist Discussion Group, hosted by Rachel Hills and I, will be held on Tuesday May 7 at 7pm, at LEON on Old Compton Street in Soho. We’ll be talking about the Dove ‘Real Beauty’ Sketches Campaign. (Click through or see video below.)

All women (and interested men) welcome. We are a trans-inclusive group. Just RSVP to londonfeministdiscussion[@]gmail[.]com (or join our Facebook group) by Thursday May 2 so we can book an appropriately sized space.

A few articles you might want to take a look at before the meeting:

Why Dove’s ‘Real Beauty Sketches’ Video Makes Me Uncomfortable… and Kind of Makes Me Angry (little drops)

One Narrative Fits All: Dove and “Real Beauty” (The Beheld)
Dove’s ‘real beauty’ sketches ad deserves some praise (The Guardian)

And there are plenty more where that came from if you care to Google.

Hope to see you there!
