Salon de la Vie – Season Four – Birds of a Feather
16th June 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Season Four of Salon de la Vie will be a collaboration with Dr Naomi Paxton on everything you didn’t know about the suffragettes and their creative campaigning! We’ll combine recorded extracts, songs, special guests and live shows in this season to celebrate the wild, wonderful, wise and witty women of the first wave.
Join us on June 16th for Birds of A Feather.
We will hear about plans to fill Parliament with suffragette parrots ?, talk about how the movement campaigned not just for votes for women but to end vivisection, and explore the links between vegetarianism and suffrage.
Join us with a Salty Dog cocktail ?and settle in to ruminate on the sexual politics of meat in a salon that takes in conversations with Dr Paxton and your host Rebecca, recipes from Edwardian London’s veggie scene and songs about Hounds, Hedgehogs and Rabbits…
This episode is dedicated to Keep The Ban and all the tireless work of today’s animal rights campaigners – do support Keen the Ban’s work if you can and buy one of their very fetching pins!

About Salon de la Vie
Hosted by Scary Little Girls’ Rebecca Mordan, Salon de la Vie is a series of fortnightly 15 – 20 minute extravaganzas of songs, storytelling, merriment and conversation, focusing each time on an awe-inspiring, remarkable and brave human from the world of film, music, literature and history, drawing parallels with the achievements of activists today, to celebrate how people positively embody the change they want to see in the world, for themselves and for others. And we’re super proud that each salon has a custom illustration provided by the wonderful Jacky Fleming.
Come along every other Wednesday evening to join in with our singing, celebration and joy!
