Edit: Manchester poet Anna Percy will now join us instead of Louise Bolotin. Get well soon, Louise!

Social psychology expert Nina Powell will join journalist Louise Bolotin at Blackwell's to discuss if reclaiming words can empower women.

'Slutwalks' spread across the globe after a Canadian police officer advised students to avoid "dressing like sluts". Were these protests the best way to combat serious sexual assault? What is modern-day feminism's place in today's world?

This is a Manchester Salon event. It will take place at on July 19th at Blackwell University Bookshop, The Precinct, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9RN. Please arrive around 6:30pm for drinks and nibbles, ready for a prompt 6:45pm start - expected to finish just after 8:15pm.

Tickets are £5 (£3 concessions) payable in advance, which entitles you to a £3 discount for anything bought from the us in the evening. Purchase tickets in advance, using the PayPal Donate button on the Manchester Salon website (feel free to donate on top of the £5 ticket), in-store or by phone (0161 274 3331) from us.

Oh, and the organisers say (tongue firmly in cheek, I expect): "Dress appropriately..."
