a road trip, a blog, a book

Girldrive Goes Global: UK edition

March 27th, 2010 · 3 Comments

YES! Two women in the UK just started a blog called “Women Speak Out” in preparation for their very own road trip across the UK to find out what women think and feel about feminism and their lives. The trip, they write, was inspired by Girldrive. From their blog:

Given that 2010 is a General Election year in the UK, now is the time to find out what’s on women’s minds.  This blog will document the discussions we have in each city, recording women’s views and mapping the nature of feminism across the country at this politically significant time … Reading [Girldrive] prompted the question, ‘What would a UK Girldrive look like?’ Given the re-emergence of feminist movement in the country over the past few years, and amidst a recession and other upheavals in UK politics generally, we feel it is a particularly pertinent time to gather women’s thoughts on feminism and the issues that affect them.

The blog is a little bare right now (they’re not leaving til summer), but I cannot wait to see what they come up with! Good luck ladies!!

    Hi Nona, glad you came upon our blog! We are still in the planning phase for our trip – which won’t be a road trip per se – England’s a lot smaller than the US so we’ll be visiting different cities over a few weekends throughout the summer. It should be fun and interesting, to say the least. Girldrive was certainly an inspiration- it’s great to start hearing the next wave of young 20-something feminist voices come through.

    We’ll keep you posted! x

    I can’t blame them—I’m just waiting for you to hit the open road again in hopes of tagging along. It’s great to hit the road, interview the people, cover the ground, connect with new faces. Good luck to them! :)

    That is so amazing! We should start a Girldrive Canada (I live in Toronto).
