The 50 best albums of 2022
The Kerrang! verdict on the 50 albums that shaped 2022.
Watch Ren Aldridge’s entire TEDx Talk, in which she shares “six key ways that we can contribute to ending femicide”.
A new TEDx Talk from Petrol Girls’ Ren Aldridge has just been uploaded.
The musician and activist delivered the talk back in December, though the 18-minute video has just hit YouTube today – which Ren says she’s “pleased and slightly nervous” about. It’s on the topic of femicide (which is described as ‘the intentional killing of women or girls because they are female’) and how it could be stopped.
“Through a whole load of research, I drew out six key ways that we can contribute to ending femicide,” Ren explains. “Please check it out, please share it. Femicide is not inevitable and there are ways that we can change society to stop it from happening!
“Shout out as ever to my good friend Janey Starling for her incredible work on this topic, and to everyone who read over the talk beforehand, including Anna from Feminist Autonomous Centre for Research, Athens and Alison Phipps from the Abolition Feminism network, UK.”
