Siri, stop the patriarchy

‘Siri, stop the patriarchy’ is a zine by Emily Simpson. The publication includes essays, memes,
archive images and interviews with different generations of feminists around gender equality,
our rights to protest and what feminism means to the artist as a non-binary person. It is
encouraged to be downloaded and shared.

Emily Simpson is an artist and curator. Their work looks at love, lols and loss; explored through
textiles, writing, zines, events, print-making and curation. The work often questions how
experiences (of loss, life, language) are shaped by the non-binary perspective and the political

felines in relation to feminism, the internet and identity. Emily is currently working on a series of
collaborative projects with Chris Alton regarding grief and language. This has taken the shape of
posters, events, a recipe book (commissioned by A Modest Show) and recently a billboard
(commissioned by Bloc Projects). Emily lives in Manchester, with their partner and cat named
