East End Women Take Action: 1888 to 2016
Be inspired by over 100 years of east London women fighting for change (and winning!)
Join the East End Women's Museum and East End Sisters Uncut for an afternoon of short talks and conversations about the different ways east London women have challenged sexism, racism, exploitation, and injustice then and now. Share your ideas and learn some new ones.
- Julie Begum on how Women United Against Racism took on the National Front in the 1990s
- Louise Raw on the women who led the Matchwomen's Strike of 1888
- Nadia Valman on the Jewish women who fought fascism at the Battle of Cable Street and beyond in the 1930s
- Janine Booth on the women at the heart of the Poplar Rates Rebellion of 1921
- East End Sisters Uncut on how they campaign today
- More speakers to be announced!
AND there'll be a cake stall ;-)
