That's What She Said feat. Shareefa Energy

— The Loco Klub
Feminist spoken word at it's ruthless best

That's What She Said* is "feminism at its ruthless best." - (Blouinart), "the biggest spoken word night in London for women" (Evening Standard) and was shortlisted for Best Spoken Word Night in the UK (Saboteur Awards).

**That's What She Said was named to take power back into the phrase often used to joke about sex workers. We welcome any non-binary and self-identifying womxn comrades to our stage and don't wish to exclude them because of our name!
Expect fierce, fabulous, feminist spoken word, hosted by DIY punk poet Bridget Hart. As always, we'll be showcasing the best new writing and performance by womxn and non-binary writers, featuring iconic and emerging authors with a mix of performance, poetry, storytelling, slam and more.

Not only is That's What She Said a great place to see talented literary performers, for everyone and not just women, but it provides a space for women to shout and scream their anger, their frustrations, their desires; a space without censorship, without objectification and without the dreaded “it must be her time of the month” quip. I think For Books’ Sake is doing some really important work." (Recent review of one of our London shows)
Can't make it? We'll be back in January. Want to get involved? Send us an email to bridget@forbookssake.net and we'll see what we can do!
