#PCSubtitle: Beatrix Potter


Submissions for this contest are now closed. See the list of winners at the bottom of this post. See the next contest, on Fyodor Dostoyevsky, here

Last week we asked you to propose #PCSubtitles for books by Charles Dickens. Read the winner and runner-up subtitles here.

This week’s assignment is any book by Beatrix Potter. Do you see in Peter Rabbit or the Two Bad Mice a prototype for today’s social justice warriors? Squirrel Nutkin has to buy from an old powerful gatekeeper the privilege to gather his daily food. What implicit critique of patriarchy do you spy there?

Share your submissions on Twitter with the hashtag #PCSubtitle and the NAS Twitter handle @NASorg. You can also fill out the form at the bottom of this post.
