5867772PERIOD: An Evening with Emma Barnett
DateTuesday 17th September 2019
DescriptionJoin award-winning broadcaster and journalist Emma Barnett at Waterstones Birmingham, where shell be discussing her first book Period.At a time when women around the world are raising their voices in the fight for equality, there is still one taboo where there remains a deafening silence: periods. Emma loathes her period. Really, she does. But theres something she loathes even more: not being able to talk about it. Freely, funnily and honestly. Without men and women wrinkling their noses as if shes pulled her tampon out and offered it as an hors douevre.But somehow, despite women having had periods since the dawn of time, weve totally clammed up on anything to do with menstruation. Why, oh why, would we rather say Auntie Flo than period? Why are we still so ignorant about such a fundamental bodily process?Emma draws on female experiences that will make you laugh, weep (and, most probably, squirm), in a fierce and funny rallying cry to smash this ridiculous taboo once and for all. Because its about bloody time.Emma Barnett is an award-winning broadcaster and journalist. By day, she presents The Emma Barnett Show on BBC Radio 5 Live in which she interviews key figures shaping our times, from the Prime Minister to those who would very much like to be. By night, she presents the BBCs flagship current affairs programme, Newsnight, on BBC Two and hosts Late Night Womans Hour on BBC Radio 4. Emma was named Radio Broadcaster of the Year by the Broadcasting Press Guild for her agenda-setting interviews. Previously, she was the Womens Editor at The Telegraph. She now writes a weekly agony aunt column, Tough Love in the Sunday Times Magazine and is a proud patron of Smart Works. Period is her first book.Tickets for this event are 3 and can be booked online. Ethical period brand Freda are offering a complimentary emergency period kit to everyone who buysa copy of Emma'sbook at the event.
