Gina Birch is making a film about The Raincoats and another about feminism. The idea was that we'd wallow in the swimming pool in her garden (it's blue plastic but it's warm) in the sunshine. But the sky was gloomy and threatening, so instead we ate the passion fruit tarts that Caroline Coon brought, the cherries that I brought, and drank the coffee that Gina brewed, and filmed and discussed all morning and into the afternoon.
There are so many ways of being a feminist, and I don't think any of the three of us fits the stereotype at all; very few punk rock women wanted to say that's what they were at the time, and we talked about why that was, and all sorts of other things that you will see when she finishes the film! She has also talked to Lucy O'Brien and a few other people as well (not just female ones, of course, ha ha)
This is Caroline's photo of the three of us.
