On 29th April in 1992, a jury found four LA police officers ‘Not Guilty’ of beating up motorist Rodney King, despite television audiences all over the world having seen them do it.
On 27th April in the same year, Betty Boothroyd was elected Speaker of the House of Commons. She was the first woman to hold the post.
On 24th April 1993, an IRA bomb devastated the Bishopsgate area of the City of London.
The prompts this week are therefore:
Women can do anything
One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter
As usual, don’t wait for me - if you’re inspired, go for it!
Post your drabble as a comment to this post, and if you have any ideas for future seasonal prompts, let me know by PM. I may also use the occasional completely random prompt if something occurs to me.
You can write any fandom or original fiction, any pairing or none.
You don’t have to write in English if you don’t want to.
Please note that if you do choose to write in another language, I can't promise to comment beyond a simple "Thank You", although I will do my best via Google! A rough translation would be lovely, but is not essential. The translation does not have to be 100 words, nor does it need to be polished or “good English”. Just the gist is fine, to put across the idea.
So long as you are confident that your response meets one of the prompts, that’s good enough for me.
