Event description

Description

Blackwell's is delighted to present an evening with Shami Chakrabarti on her new book 'Of Women', a powerful, urgent and timely polemic on why women still need equality, and how we get there.

In 'Of Women', Shami Chakrabarti explores the huge challenges we face in the twenty-first century, a time of crises the world over, with honesty and clarity. It looks at how we have not yet done enough to create a more equal world: one where women and men share power, responsibility and opportunity. One that is potentially happier and more peaceful. One where no life is wasted, and everyone has a chance to fulfil their potential.

From the disparity in the number of births to issues of schooling, work, ownership, faith, political representation and international diplomacy, 'Of Women' outlines what needs fixing and makes clear, inspiring proposals about what we do next, putting women's rights at the centre of the progressive political agenda.

The talk will be introduced by Mark Goldring, Chief Executive of Oxfam.

Shami Chakrabarti is Britain's leading human rights campaigner, Labour's Shadow Attorney General and a member of the House of Lords. Chakrabarti was the Director of Liberty, the National Council for Civil Liberties from 2003 to 2016. Her bestselling book On Liberty, an impassioned defence of human rights, was published in 2014.

This special event will take place in the Sheldonian Theatre located on Broad Street. Entry to the event including a copy of 'Of Women' costs £25 or you can purchase entry only tickets for £8. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis, with the doors opening at 6:30pm. For all enquiries, please email events.oxford@blackwell.co.uk.
