Event description

Description

This year, Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland is 40 years old!

We have a whole year of fundraising events planned, including Her Story, a series of inspiring, bold, unique and personal talks from a range of women who have succeeded in a world not designed for women's success.

Taking place at Tyne Bank Brewery on Saturday 6th October 2018, Her Story features nine inspiring, personal and eclectic talks from women in industries such as fashion, STEM, sport, politics and the entertainment sector. The event aims to foreground women’s stories of success, with each speakers’ definition of success being unique. Each talk will include an opportunity for audience questions and general discussion.

All talks will be signed by a BSL interpreter. The venue is accessible.
