Event description

Description

2018 marks the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, in which women first won the right to vote in the UK.

One hundred years on from this historic victory for women's rights, has gender equality now been achieved or is there work still to be done? We're bringing together academics in gender, education, and the world of work to discuss the position of women in 21st Century Britain, and ask whether we still need a movement for women's rights.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Eva Tutchell, co-author "The Stalled Revolution: Is Equality for Women an Impossible Dream?"
  • Joanna Williams, author "Women Vs Feminism: Why We All Need Liberating from the Gender Wars"
  • John Edmonds, co-author "The Stalled Revolution: Is Equality for Women an Impossible Dream?"
  • Parveen Akhtar, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations, Aston University
  • Surya Monro, Director of the Centre for Citizenship, Conflict, Identity and Diversity, University of Huddersfield
  • Moderator: Donna Lee, Professor of International Political Economy, Manchester Metropolitan University

Entrance to the event includes free drinks and refreshments, served from 6pm.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Womankind Worldwide, who work in partnership with women's rights organisations and movements to transform the lives of women and girls.

Copies of "The Stalled Revolution" and "Women Vs Feminism" will be available to purchase at the event.
