Event Details

Organised in support of The Women’s Library, this half-day event celebrates making and remembering women’s history. Coinciding with the exhibition ‘The Long March to Equality: Treasures of The Women’s Library’, the event asks how aspects of women’s history and ‘the women’s movement’ have been represented and mediated at key points in time, looking across The Women’s Library Collections and at historical biographies and popular television drama. 

Alongside speakers from TWL, Professor June Purvis will give a special talk on the biographies of Emmeline Pankhurst, while Helen Wheatley (University of Warwick) and Vicky Ball (University of Sunderland) will explore the way in which dramas such as Upstairs Downstairs and Shoulder to Shoulder also engage with histories of women and the women’s movement.

The event is organised in partnership with the Women’s Film History Network and MeCCSA Women’s Media Studies Network, with support from the Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies, University of Sunderland.

The talks are followed by a drinks reception from 5:15 - 6pm.
