Ever been told to behave more like a lady? Wondered exactly what this meant?
Wondered how much energy you’d save if you could just be yourself instead? Why does being a woman involve such desperate performance? What codes of etiquette are involved and why? What happens when these codes are challenged, deconstructed and imagined away? What happens when we stop dolling up, giving in, smiling politely, keeping our laughter in our throats and our opinions to ourselves?
