Description

A public lecture by Dr Sue Bruley, Project Co-Lead and former Reader in Modern History at the University of Portsmouth

The impact of feminist movements in Britain since the 1960s has been enormous, not least in Portsmouth with its distinct naval heritage. The University of Portsmouth awarded a Heritage Fund grant to lead a study that looks at how women have campaigned for and promoted a better way of life for people in the city. In this lecture, Dr Bruley discusses the findings and outcomes of this year-long project and there will be a showcase of a touring exhibition on the lives of the 50 local women whose life stories have been recorded for this project.

Venue: University of Portsmouth, King Henry Building, King Henry 1 Street, University of Portsmouth PO1 2DY
