"Don't Hide Behind Your Skirt": Female Empowerment in the Arts with Creatrix & GirlPop Visionary, Aurora Pringle
"I know that my pieces won't be in a history book. They're going to be in girls' closets."
Artist Aurora Pringle talks with Debonee about her new zine, "Don't Hide Behind Your Skirt", a memoire of her abusive childhood. From a place of strength and creativity, Aurora speaks on the challenges that women face in the world of self expression, why she has as heart for young women, the connection between men and violence, the tough part of being in healthy relationships, talking back to trauma, how hard it is to be a teenager, definitions of feminism (and what's up with young women who just don't get it?!?!), balls and creativity, the zine as an art form...
Find out why Katy Perry is making Aurora angry, but Beyonce gets two thumbs up. Goldiblocks, Grrrl Power, Spice Girls and more...
