Amanda Palmer at The United Nations

Amanda Palmer took part in the United Nations Day To End Violence Against Women on 25 November. It wasn't a showbiz and glitzy affair, it was serious stuff and here's Amanda's blog about it and a video of her reading:

I'm sort of proud of Amanda for doing this. At one level she's a pop star but she's not afraid to get involved with things like this and, by being invited to do it, shows that she's on the list of 'people who care'. She does care. She's been around for long enough to know what she's capable of and to understand her reach and capacity.

She reached out to me on that summer night in 2005 at Patti Smith's Meltdown and I responded. There is no need to reach out again, I'm there.
