Women, Literature and Feminism
In support of Womankind Worldwide
Wednesday 25th November
Three leading modern feminist thinkers and author Georgina Harding feature at our charity event with Womankind Worldwide to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25th November.
Join us for a thought provoking panel talk with Jacqueline Rose, leading feminist thinker, historian and author of Women in Dark Times, celebrated novelist Georgina Harding, and influential feminist journalist Laura Bates. Each member of the panel will be reading a piece from their favourite international female writer and discussing why it’s relevant for women’s rights and feminism today.
The evening will begin with an informal drinks reception with the speakers, followed by a talk with our panel of writers and leaders of feminist thinking. The event will be chaired by writer and Guardian journalist Harriet Minter.
In no country in the world do women enjoy the same rights or opportunities as men. Every day women and girls face discrimination, poverty and violence just because they are female. Womankind is working to change that.
Since Womankind was founded 26 years ago, it has helped more than 18 million women and their families. They support women to transform their lives and their communities by working in partnership with women's rights organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Womankind aims to end violence against women and girls, increase women’s civil and political participation and make sure women have equal access to and control over economic resources.Ticket Details
