The Vacant Space Donate Click the donate button to purchase a copy of 'The Vacant Space - The Journal of an Ageing Feminist' by Mel Read. Do slugs have rights? Are arguments about toilet rolls grounds for divorce? How do you decorate a bust of Lenin in time for Christmas? Address these and many more other questions in The Vacant Space, the author roams at will through a series of memories, thoughts, and experiences, which have all brought joy, delight, disgust, or contempt, but always fascination to an ageing feminist. The Vacant Space isn't a diary and it's certainly not a guide to living. Rather it is a celebration of finding something remarkable in each new day.
