The next event in Southall Black Sisters' 40th anniversary celebrations is a panel discussion on 15 May at 6pm, part of The Globe's week long festival, Women and Power. SBS will join forces with Clean Break, a theatre company for women ex-offenders, who are also 40 this year to look at the political forces that led to our birth and the political challenges we face today. Avtar Brah, a founder member of SBS, will speak about the late 70s and I will speak about the main themes of our political work since then. Tickets available here.
I will be joining a fabulous line up of speakers, Sheila Rowbotham and Lynne Segal, to talk about Dangerous Women: Celebrating 130 years of working women's fight for freedom supported by Islington Trades Council - Women's Event. Islington Town Hall (Committee Rooms 5/6), 7-9pm - Friday 24 May 2019
The Royal Literary Fund, of which I am a fellow, commissions short podcasts from its writers on a variety of themes. Here is a 3 min podcast on 'Letter to my younger self'.
