My lady parts : a life fighting stereotypes

Mackichan, Doon2023
Books
In 'My Lady Parts', Doon shares her experience on stage, screen and in real life, examining how our culture still expects women to adhere to certain stereotypes - and punishes those who don't. Doon looks at the stories we are telling and asks: what do these roles we give women tell us about their value in the society we live in? How do we hold our heads up without fear and say no to those that objectify us? The Deranged Mother. The Stupid Tart. The Hag. This is a courageous, vulnerable and empowering account of being a woman in an industry that has been exposed for its deep-rooted sexism. It is, above all, a call to reflect on - and radically rework - the implications such attitudes have for future generations.
