100 years since suffrage: feminism and protest

100 Years Since Suffrage: Feminism and Protest Sold Out

Bristol Women’s Literature Festival

Talk

Please note: This event took place in March 2018

Duration:
90 mins

Feminist activists, writers and journalists Sheila Rowbotham, Samira Ahmed, Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett, Nimco Ali and Professor Helen Taylor will discuss the role of feminist protest, writing and activism in 2018, the challenges the movement faces, and our hopes for a feminist future.

For a long time, the narrative went that the feminist battle had been won – in the west at least. But in a Trump and #MeToo world, where austerity cuts have hit women hardest and where women are still fighting sexism and misogyny online and off, we need feminism as much as ever.
