To be honest, we never quite expected our post about this trailer to gather quite so much attention, but the debate and discussion that has been generated has been really interesting and we’d like to thank everyone who has messaged us about this or replied to the original post – If you’ve not read the comments, please do!
In response, SHAFF have written a follow up piece which can be found here.
After reading their article, we would just like to point out that LaDIYfest is a collective with several people heavily involved behind the scenes and that our post was a collaborative effort about an issue we wanted to draw attention to, not just on behalf of those in the collective but others who had shared their thoughts with us. As I think Hannah said in one of the comments, we don’t take pleasure in being ‘angry feminist bloggers’ and this is a somewhat unfair stereotype that doesn’t really help anyone.
The festival is happening this weekend at The Showroom, maybe see you there?
