Never mind dancing backwards in high-heels
Four Sydney women recently broke the world stiletto sprint record. Click here then scroll down to watch them go. Heels had to be at least three inches high, and legs (for some spurious reason to do with hair's breadth wins) had to be freshly shaven.
S suggests Wellington tango women would be up to fielding a pretty good team if the event is ever repeated. But then she's the only person I know who wears higher heels in real life than she does for tango.
I'm a writer. Sometimes I write fiction and sometimes I'd rather do something else, like earn money, travel or dance tango. Whatever I do, I never stop looking. So this blog is about looking to write, writing to see, and seeing to think. I was once the kind of feminist who believed it was wrong to delight in such things. Now I'm the kind of feminist who doesn't believe that at all. I will never, as Linda Grant puts it, go beige into that good night.
