“The formidable Audre Lorde once said ‘Your silence will not protect you’ and I try to live by that everyday. There is no choice but to speak about sex, our bodies, shame, stigma, marginalisation and taboo because being silent only reinforces the problems that already exist. If I didn’t then I’d only be suffering in silence and leaving others without the representation they deserve.”
Q & A with Hannah Witton
WHEN: Monday 11th May at 1pm on our Instagram Live Stream @Shwomenstore
Join us for a lunchtime chat with Youtuber, Broadcaster & Author Hannah Witton!

From Youtube, to podcasts, to her books; the award-winning Doing It and The Hormone Diaries, Hannah’s frank and open tone is something we can’t wait for her to bring to our Q&A session!
“Sex isn’t just about sex. It’s about self-esteem, shame, respect, connection and identity. It’s about money, politics, violence and the world. This is why sex positivity and talking openly about topics surrounding sex is so crucial – whether you have sex or not, it’s woven into the fabric of many aspects of our lives and we simply can’t ignore it.”

Test your knowledge of anatomy, sex positions, sex toys, sex scenes, song lyrics and much more in this banging pub quiz.
How the virtual teams will work:
You and your team members (no teams larger than 5) don’t have to be living in the same house or even know each other - teams can set up a WhatsApp group via which they can discuss their answers and will set up a google doc onto which they will write their answers.
If you want to join the pub quiz solo then you can join a team but you will need to be up for sharing your phone number with members of that team in order to take part.

Q & A with Anti Diet Riot Club
WHEN: Friday 10th April at 6.30pm on our Instagram Live Stream @Shwomenstore
TOPIC: Pleasure, Sex & Body Positivity
ANTI DIET RIOT CLUB is a rebellious-spirited community, dedicated to fighting back against ‘Diet Culture’ and the dangerous body and beauty ideals that come with it. They throw events in London that promote body acceptance, fat-positivity & self love!
The idea of the ADRC is to build a rebellious-spirited community dedicated to fighting back against ‘Diet Culture’ and the dangerous body ideals and standards of beauty that surround it. They believe that empowering people to love themselves is not just a cheesy Instagram post or brand slogan, it’s a small but powerful resistance against a society that profits billions of $$ from our self-loathing. ADRC believes that diet culture negatively affects our mental, physical and emotional worlds by telling us that we are not good or worthy enough unless we are trying to lose weight/be more muscly/eat less/sweat more at all times. They strongly believe that there IS an alternative way to live free from some of these pressures and dangerously unattainable ideals.
