An Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Hull, 8th-9th September 2016
A bright view on women’s ungratefulness… of course, do tell us what we must wear, and do, and think, and and and… how can we manage, otherwise?
I do not think this is a proper way of handling a very delicate issue. We have Catholic nuns who only show their face: what if someone imposed them to undress in public?
What if someone asked us? Or imposed any sort of public behaviour? And it’s all played on women’s bodies, again, as always. Have they thought about the consequences on that woman? How can we really gain anything from her humiliation and her rage?
I disagree. And I am quite sad about all this. This is going to force many women to stay indoor. Is this the result we are hoping for?
