    Suitability: 16+ A fearless adventure into the dark heart of a paradigm shift... Three women, aged 20, 40 and 60 (but not a virgin, mother or hag in sight), set about unpicking the fine weave of existence, re-examining with fresh and furious eyes, threads such as gender, fertility, sexual assault and the state of feminism today. What taboos need eating? Which sacred cows should we slaughter? And what will help us to thrive? As the analogue world disappears into the mists of time... What kind of world are we leaving to our daughters of the digital age?
