The Everyday Sexism Project and No More Page 3 bring you a comedy extravaganza in an exclusive and intimate West End venue.
From feminist drag burlesque to a women’s rights rap, this is activism as you’ve never seen it before! Join these comedians to laugh out loud at the absurdity of sexism in 2012 and poke fun at the idea that campaigning for women’s rights is stuffy, staid or straight laced.
