This Is What Happens If You Actually Try to Burn a Bra


Welcome to Girl Dicks, a new Jezebel series in which amateur gumshoes Madeleine Davies and I investigate a variety of pressing women’s issues. We’re here to solve sexism, no matter how much work it takes. For our first case, we find out what happens when a couple of feminists burn their bras.

By now, most people know that while the stereotype of feminists as angry militant bra-burners is a persistent one, it’s actually a big urban legend. But what if they did? What would happen? What would that look like? What would it smell like? Would it feel empowering or liberating? We found the answers to all of that and more. You’re welcome, motherfuckers.
