Feminist Q & A

In the lead up to the conference, we thought it’d be fun to have a little Q&A in the hopes that we might all get to know each other a little better.  Answers can be posted in the comments section below.  If you have a question you’d like asked – feel free to post it there too (or e-mail it to us) and we’ll add it to the list.

1. If feminism was a meal, what would it be?

2. If you were an art supply, what kind of art supply would you be?

3. What is your favourite feminist tool?

    Number 1. My feminism is a kind of giant Mezze plate mix meal, in which there is definitely amazing stuffed vine leaves, babaghanoush and carrot sticks etc. and some confusing things like pineapple and cheese on sticks, and animal shaped biscuits, and a whole load of stuff I’m not sure about yet like lychees and savoury chocolate dishes which may just be wrong. Also there would be a wide, possibly infinite, selection of cakes for pudding.

    Number 2. Purple Square of Felt.

    Number 3. Not sure if this is ‘tool for dismantling the patriarchy’ (cake maybe?) or if its space to express my love for my electric hammer-drill which can apparently drill through masonry. I’m sure its feminist somehow. I sadly have not yet found the opportunity to test it… but if anyone has any masonry (or knows what counts as masonry) which needs holes…

    Sooo, I guess…

    1. could be a huge Indian feast. Everyone thinks they know what Indian food is like (of course – butter chicken, chicken tikka, naan bread…), yet traveling to India shows you such a surprising variety of tastes and smells and spices – every region has it’s own special cuisine. Nearly everything I have eaten was amazing, yet I have to say – beware of the Delhi belly …

    2. has to be a colouring book – thanks to the Bad Art Collective I know how important this art supply is for truly bad art.

    3. my brain?

    1) A ‘pot luck ‘ supper eveyone brings something different , you try and share and discuss
    2) Glass- it’s my medium and it can be so many different things strong/brittle opaque /transparent and it’s everyday and precious
    3) It’s got to be my brain

    1. Fruit salad! (see my post on “Why RFF?”)

    2. This would have to be a B2 pencil to make soft shadings and dark lines.

    3. Technology for deconstructing habitual thought patterns.

    perhaps not quite a “meal” but i’d say pomegranate pavlova!
    the chemistry of it is hecka elusive, but who cares because the flavours make perfect sense.
    also the first time your exposed to it you can’t help but be a bit upset that no one had told you about this sooner.
    (hmmmm breakfast tacos/burritos might actually be the savoury equivalent, for those without a sweet tooth)

    • Hils says:

      wow. i never knew pomegranate pavlova existed…but need to find some now – it sounds amazing on both a culinary and metaphorical level 🙂

  7. 1. I don’t know, but there’d be enough for everyone.

    2. Macaroni, lentils, flour and water glue. Home-made ‘playdo’. Dancing.

    3. Tears.
