A Special Date for your Diary

Join us on the afternoon of  1st October 2021 to Celebrate and Remember over 50 years of Women’s Activism and The Movement Against Violence Against Women

Hosted by us, and to coincide with the publication of her captivating new book this May, activist and scholar Gill Hague will join a panel of brilliant women to celebrate and reflect on over 50 years of women’s activism. 

History and memories of the Domestic Violence Movement: We’ve Come Further Than You Think follows the inspiring story of the domestic violence movement in the UK and internationally from the 1960s to todayThe book pulls back the curtain on the important part that many women’s activists played in establishing the movement. Memories, poems and interviews with activists, practitioners and abuse survivors shed new light on a period of immense change, shaped by this generation of feminist pioneers.

This event brings together this generation and a new one to share a special moment of remembering and celebrating in order to learn from the past for the future. This is a special event to celebrate women’s activism since the 1970s; and will reflect on this often-inspiring history of change and struggle against abuse. 

Planned speakers include: 

·      Pragna Patel (Southall Black Sisters)

·      Sarbjit Ganger (Asian Women’s Resource Centre, Brent) 

·      Liz Kelly (CWASU, London) 

·      Gill Hague (Centre for Gender and Violence Research, Bristol) 

Please save the date for this special event in London, featuring the book.

Planned to be (hopefully) both face-to-face and live-streamed
