Putes Feministes, Fleur Godart
Translate as the Feminist Whores. Distributed by 'Vins et Volailles', a wine company based in the Paris area. Founded by Fleur Godart, who selects wines from trusted producers and supply them to bars and restaurants that share her militant ideals. The poultry comes from her dad's farm in the Dordogne.
In Fleur Godart's own words: "Here's our plan: to throw delicious bottles at the face of patriarchy. We want to create a safe space for feminism on labels, devoted to fighting all forms of oppression. We want to add militant feminism to the wine menu. The world may not be ready for it, but it will be alright. We may have to explain how and why we are self-determined 'Feminist Whores' and that is a proud and powerful statement. We will tell you the illustration is by Justine Saint Lo, freely inspired by Helmut Newton's 'Sie Kommen'. We might lose our patience then. Xo"
