We are delighted to announce that Bashabi Fraser and Lucy Ribchester are amongst our judges for this year’s Bold Types Women’s Writing Competition.
In these exchanges the group tackles the time honoured feminist territory of bras. Issues of management, the judgement and surveillance of oneself and by others, presentation and concealment of the body and ideas of private and public display of breasts are shared and there is discussion of how backs are also subject to criticism and policing.
