A three-booker

This weekend was a 3-booker.

I learned some things:

  1. I don’t know enough about feminism.
  2. Remember those tabloid headlines from the ’70’s, screaming about GLC money being wasted on ‘one-legged, black, lesbian, women’s groups’?   What they were actually objecting to was probably a co-operative of female architects collaborating with the mostly female clients of a new GLC funded community centre to design how it should work.  ‘Making Space‘ is an interesting set of essays from that time that may well revise your memories.
  3. The system isn’t what I thought it was.  It turns out capitalism has been hijacked.   Read ‘Kleptopia’ while you can.  It’s scary, but a lot of things make sense afterwards.
