We are working with partners on two meetings to celebrate 100 years since the first women won the right to vote in UK Parliamentary elections.
The first of these meetings is at the Hackney Museum on International Women’s Day itself (this Thursday, 8 March) from 5:30pm for a 6 O’clock start (and closing at 8pm). The museum is also running a fantastic exhibition, 100 years of women’s activism in the borough. There are very few tickets left, so if you want one, register now
The second is on 20 March and part of the ‘change-makers’ series organised at New Unity at Newington Green (the birthplace of modern feminism) between 7pm and 9pm. There are still tickets for this event, but register now to avoid disappointment.
Both sessions look at the remarkable work of Sylvia Pankhurst (daughter of Emmeline and sister of Christabelle and sometimes referred to as the ‘forgotten Pankhurst’).
Both evenings will be fun, informative and will ask, what can we learn from the past, and how can we advance the cause of women today.
Don’t miss out!
The second event is with our friends at on 20 March (part of their celebration of change makers series)
At both events places will be limited, so do book early.
With elections in May we are keen to work with partners to host meetings where politicians seeking our votes will answer our questions. I you are part of a community group willing to co-host an event, please do get in touch.
