You Spineless Vagina

You Spineless Vagina is my response to a brief set around exploring archives. While exploring author Wendy Perriam's personal archive at Kingston University, I discovered an array of handwritten letters from the 1980s, some of which hateful. This made me think about the ways in which female writers are susceptible to abuse in the age of the internet. I reached out to handfuls of female writers, authors, journalists and columnists to ask for examples of messages they receive to turn into a hand stitch bound publication. You Spineless Vagina turns the throwaway and transient nature of a digital message into a handwritten letter - something tactile and permanent - to highlight the culture of online misogyny.
