Damsel – Hypatia review

Hypatia is the powerful story of a brilliant woman, her place in history somewhat brushed aside and overlooked. Hypatia of Alexandria was a Greek philosopher, astronomer, mathematician, inventor and educator, who imparted great knowledge upon her students. She was beaten to death by religious zealots for supposedly enticing a feud between the prefect and bishop […]

Damsel – Pasta e Insalata Review

Praise be to the Guild for putting Pasta e Insalata in the Ref. With prices starting as low as $7.80 (with a cheeky Guild discount), there is nothing they can do wrong. You are given a choice of spaghetti or penne pasta to go with a range of delicious sauces. I do recommend the simple […]

Damsel – Respect. Now. Always.

The following content could be distressing to readers. Damsel advises discretion and would like to provide a content warning for sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape. The data from the Australian Human Rights Commission’s survey into sexual assault on campus was long awaited and a result of consistent and passionate lobbying from both survivors and […]

Damsel – Music Review – Rainbow

The following content could be distressing to readers. Damsel advises discretion and would like to provide a content warning for sexual, emotional and physical abuse. Kesha has always appeared to be the bratty, trashy cousin of pop music. After grabbing the attention of two of Los Angeles’ biggest and broadest music producers, Dr. Luke and […]

DAMSEL – Review: The Get Down

Netflix original series The Get Down (directed by Baz Luhrmann) is a vibrant, intense, political and intoxicating exploration of the rise of one of America’s original art forms, hip hop. Set in the South Bronx during the 1970s, it follows a group of teenagers who are hoping to make their mark on the musical world. […]

DAMSEL – Having Faith in LGBTQ+

I have found over the last few years that people tend to be walking contradictions. I fit this very well – a goth finance student, a girl with a wardrobe full of dresses, and I wear the same pair of ratty, dying (I’m in denial over their imminent death) pair of boots everywhere. I am […]

DAMSEL | The Diary of Anne Frank review

The Diary of Anne Frank is a play adaptation of the diary kept by Anne Frank during World War II. It follows the Franks (Mr and Mrs Frank, and their daughters, Margot and Anne), the Van Daans (Mr and Mrs Van Daan, and their son, Peter), and Mr Dussel, during their time in hiding in […]

DAMSEL | The Corporatisation of Motherhood

The following content could be distressing to readers. Damsel advises discretion and would like to provide a content warning for abuse and toxic parenting. DISCLAIMER: I, the author, am a white cis woman. However, I will be discussing issues that surround society’s blatant erasure of the trans narrative. If I have said anything inaccurate or […]

DAMSEL | Spotlight On: Angel Haze

American rapper Angel Haze has two albums under their belt, a few mixtapes, and a string of singles all at the age of 25. Haze’s music is evocative, heavy, and thought provoking, with songs exploring and subverting ideas of identity, race, and social justice. Haze, born Raykeea Wilson, identifies as pansexual and agender, saying “I […]

DAMSEL | Queen Sugar Review

There are only a handful of writer/directors that I feel completely safe in the hands of, and one of them is Ava DuVernay. If you’ve seen anything by DuVernay (Selma, 13TH, Middle of Nowhere, This Is the Life), then you know what I’m talking about. She delivers diverse stories in a real, confronting, and gritty […]
