Produced and presented by Red Raw

Hosted by The Cockpit

To mark International Women's Day 2018 Red Raw presents Leftover Women.

Sheng nu loosely translated as 'leftover women' is a derogatory term most prominently used in China to describe unmarried women over 27 years old.

The evening will begin with an installation and performance by Li Maizi – one of China's 'Feminist Five' who were arrested
and detained for 37 days for campaigning against sexual harassment on International Women's Day in China in March 2015.
Li will share her experiences of being held in a detention centre and provide a detailed view of feminist activism in China.

vaChina, a UK-based Chinese feminist group, will then perform excerpts from a play developed in the style of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, in which personal views are shared on the gender issues in Chinese society.

A cabaret featuring contributions from a diverse range of performers and artists will then close the evening. Artists include:

Meena Kandasamy

Rubyyy Jones

Ms Samantha Mann

Vera Chok

Joelle Taylor

All gift-wrapped and air-hosted for you by Sophie Cameron.

The line-up may be subject to change.

Dates:
Sunday 11th March – 7:00pm

Tickets:
£7.50 online and £10 on the door
