So let’s celebrate awesome women everywhere. Why not start by reading some Clara Zetkin? Some of her writing are available online in English and German.

    Did you see that great appeal Dame Judi Dench and Daniel Craig did for this occasion?

      That’s a wonderful video.

      Now I can’t help but wonder what the Bond fans among my students would think about Daniel Craig in drag.

        The one thing I was thinking when I saw the outfit is “How come James Bond is in a formal business suit, but Jane Bond isn’t in the female equivalent?”

        • Cora says:

          Going by what the women in Spooks wear, Jane Bond is about right, if a bit overdressed. Going by what the women in James Bond films usually wear, Jane Bond would have to appear either in a slinky evening gown or a bikini. Both of which would look very strange on Daniel Craig.

            I was sort of hoping for a female power suit with knee-length skirt and stockings ^^.
            Although I might have liked to see Daniel Craig carry off one of the Bondgirl bikinis, yes.
