Today is International Women’s Day and here is my International Women’s Day mixed content post.

The Quotes

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

There is a stubbornness about me that can never bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.

Jane Austen

A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.

Coco Chanel

Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere.

Mae West

The Song

Random and Weird Phone Shots

Statements in the City – Climate Change Sticker

Not really a Random and Weird Phone Shot, as this fits more with my Statements-in-the-city themed posts, though much like the RAWPS, it is temporary, but it doesn’t matter anyway. What matters is the message.

climate change is mass murder

Just wondering, how do you think we will justify ourselves to future generations?

Some Statements in the City

Yes, I know I have already used a similar title. I like to keep a consistent theme on the blog.

These are some shots of, you couldn’t call it street art, but well, some interesting posters with political-type statements.

My favourite one is “the revolution will be cleaned by the council.” Because you know it will.

Hmm, I may just add this to Gloomscapes as a bonus post.

Random and Weird Phone Shots -Statements in the City

Today I want to share with you two phone camera shots I took the other day in Manchester City Centre. Both make a clear statement.

fuck trump fuck brexit

This is on the wall on Oldham Street, Manchester. Oldham Street is part of Northern Quarter, a centre of alternative culture, independent shops and suchlike. (Come to think of it, this blogs needs some pics of that area!)

Brexit and Trump seem to get mentioned together a lot. Imagine one day in the future someone who is a baby now, or not born yet, asking you: “What were they, some comedy duo?”

I wish. The difference is, The Donald won’t be in charge for more than 8 years but Brexit is final.

This politics thing is getting a bit tiring, isn’t it.
