International Women’s Day

Happy IWD folks!

My inbox today informed me that Verso has a 40% off sale on all its feminist books. See here for that and a little blurb on the radical roots of IWD, which thankfully has not been co-opted to the extent that Mother’s Day, which has a similar backstory, has.

The image at the top of the page and copied here is one I hadn’t seen before of a nice piece of street art. The full version is even more interesting than that on the Verso page:

Sierra Exif JPEG

– Hackney Flashers, Who’s still holding the baby?, 1978

There’s a fuller account of it here.
