Come and discuss the cult King Kong Theory by Virginie Despentes (translated by Frank Wynne, Fitzcarraldo Editions).
A prequel to the #Metoo movement, this unique manifesto for a new punk feminism is a personal account of how the author of Vernon Subutex developed ideas about power while revealing common misconceptions about masculinity and gender. Over the years Virginie Despentes has become a champion to invisible women, the monstrous and the marginalised and the reissue of a classic essay with a new translation offers a fresh, inspiring path forward.
