Feminist talk about boobs and Jayne Mansfield’s IQ at MCA Denver tonight!


“Jayne Mansfield was a member of Mensa — it wasn’t only her boobs that were huge. She had, like, a 163 IQ; she spoke five languages. There are all kinds of interesting women from that decade who were reduced to their breasts and whose comedic talents, as in the case of Monroe and brilliance in the case of Mansfield…. They knew, to use contemporary language, they knew they were performing their gender.”
Professor Melinda Barlow

Doors open for Feminism & Co. at 5:30 p.m. today at the MCA, 1485 Delgany Street; the program begins at 6:30. Tickets are $17, $12 for members. For more information, visit www.mcadenver.org or call 303-298-7554.
