Demographic Appeasement in the Wake of Sarah Everard’s Death:

For men, it seems to be evoking a need for them to be defensive for their sex and reiterate what anyone with… Continue reading Demographic Appeasement in the Wake of Sarah Everard’s Death:

Netflix’s Rebecca: A Review

Rating: 4/5 I watched Rebecca as soon as it came out on Netflix, partly because they recommend it to me and partly because it’s right up my alley and I remember loving the book when I was studying it for English Literature GCSEs.
