On the Rag: Don’t buy your Mum scales for Mother’s Day
Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden, Michèle A’Court tackle the past month in women, with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop.
This month on On the Rag, we look back at the month of April and yes we are very late and we’re very sorry. Mother’s Day is around the corner, and brands are doing the absolute most to make the worst gift suggestions of all time. Farmers is encouraging you to buy 11 different hair removal machines, and Michael Hill wants you to buy your Work Mum a lovely pair of studs, too.
There’s also story about a woman asked to cover up at her local pool, the viral breasts that reminded us all we have no idea what our bodies look like and a hurtful character lurking inAvengers: Endgame. We also nominate our Kia Ora Kuini of the month and remind you all that our webseries also exists and you should really watch it.
