Burlesque & Feminism with Long Eaton Women’s Institute

On Tuesday I gave a talk on burlesque & feminism to Long Eaton WI for their branch birthday meeting!

After our talk.  Against a backdrop of the formidable Rubyyy Jones I initiated a couple of the ladies into the burlesque sisterhood by teaching them the art of the glove tease. The remaining ladies at the event were schooled in burlesque audience etiquette and given a few shout outs to try on.  They provided a hugely supportive and very audible audience for the first time glove teasers, with regulars shouts of ‘hell yeah!’ I even heard a few ‘awoogas’!13124984_580210565470622_1694447362604648705_n

What a lovely group of ladies, what a lovely branch – and an amazing burlesque birthday cake! Very glad to chat with them #InspiringWomen all of them.
