Women Activists Challenge Re-Modelling Derry

category derry | gender and sexuality | opinion/analysis author Thursday February 11, 2010 21:21author by Eleanor Report this post to the editors

On Tuesday's issue of the Derry Journal, the newspapers editor highlighted the city's 2013 bid to make Derry the Culture Capital of the North.

Whatever peoples views on the issues surrounding Derry's 2013 'cultural bid', in the article itself the editor published an image of the model Donna Feldman poising as a giant in her underwear at under Ferryquay Gate.
City of Culture 2013?
City of Culture 2013?

The image itself and more importantly, the decision to publish it in the local press in a bid to promote the city for the 'UK City of Culture' has created much discussion and debate. As women activists tackled the editor and issues surrounding how women are used and abused by the media or as part of 'popular culture'.

The debate rumbles on...

You can listen to part of the debate in a piece during today's Sarah Brett's Show on Radio Foyle as the discussion is added to by local women activists and local women who work with young women in Derry on serious issues such as this daily.

The story kicks off around 18 minutes and 56 seconds into the show...

If you wish to voice your concerns on the issue you can email complaints to:
