Feminist funny bone
Zubaan Books continues its Zubaan Talkies (ZT) series with an evening of feminist stand-up comedy called, quite aptly, Why Did The Feminist Cross The Road? The fifth in the ongoing series held on the second Thursday of every month, ZT aims to be a platform for nurturing feminist thought across various disciplines. The idea is to encourage those outside the movement to participate and learn about issues concerning women. Each ZT is a curated event and features screenings, performance art, discussions, readings, stand-up comedy acts and workshops, among other things.
6.30 pm, June 14, The Attic, 36, Regal Building, Connaught Place, 23746050
