12 midnight Express Yourself The world is full of creative, smart women with something to say. This show promises an in your face audio assault of music, poetry, comedy and more. Passionate women will be talking about the issues that affect them most: be it sexism, the environment, reproduction, genocide, racism, the church, the police and the capitalist system they uphold. We won't be shying away from talking about female anatomy or sex acts, because these issues are a real part of every woman's life. The silence and censorship of women's issues is just another tool of control that we will be doing our bit to smash on this International Women's Day.
