I went to a feminist pop-up in Brixton yesterday and it made me wish there was one every day.
I will share some photos with you of what and who was there.
The reason I went was because I really wanted to try out the vegan Tiramisu by feminist bakery ‘The Female Glaze‘.
The owner’s name is Francesca, she went vegan four years ago and has lots of experience in the London culinary scene. She believes that veganism and feminism overlap “because of similar concerns against violence and discrimination and the focus on building a community…It’s not only a business that is kind to animals, but it also promotes women empowerment by sourcing from women-run and ethical suppliers.”
It was lovely to meet Francesca on Sunday and the RGBisu was incredibly RICH and chocolatey and, on top of that, the coffee is by women-founded Bottleshot Brew.
Then I headed to the other stall I was REALLY intersted in – the ‘Women of Brixton‘ stall!
Women of Brixton organise lots of great women-centred events and I was so happy to be able to support their work by purchasing a notebook designed by Disegnetti Depressetti – what do you think of it? I think it’s just lovely.
Women of Brixton is an intersectional feminist community whose goal is “to create value for the Community spreading Equality, Intersectionality and Body Positivity through meetings and workshops”. They are completely self-funded, so if you would like to support them, their Paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org.
There were more stalls there but I didn’t have time to check them out. They were Pomodoro e Basilico (a vegan eatery) and also Zbor Creations (a self-taught jewellery maker & designer)
Overall, it was a lovely feminist pop-up and I enjoyed being able to meet the girls behind such amazing initiatives and companies.
