Event description

Description

International Women's Day 2018 campaign theme:
#PressforProgress

A play on words but most apt. The women you will meet and discover on this walk forged their careers in what was very much a man's world, some you will have heard of, but there are others you have not. From the infamous to the little known, the rich and the poor, the bright and the beautiful, each and every one of these women have left their mark, for some, no monument or plaque records their achievements, but by word, often written under great duress. Others have made it their life's work to bring to the attention of the world an injustice or the the plight of the less fortunate.

I welcome the opportunity of introducing these extraordinary ladies to you on our walk together.

Meet at Twinings Tea Shop, 216 The Strand WC2. You can check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner.

The walk ends near Blackfriars Station.
