Kelly Jones, Melanie Latham and Aysha Mazhar hosted a very successful “Feminist Reflections” event on 21st July, in the Business School. The talks were described by participants as “challenging, interesting and thought-provoking” and a big vote of thanks goes to the organising team (plus their student helpers) and to all the speakers and chairs.
The first seminars and meetings for the autumn term of 2017 will be announced shortly and we are in the process of pulling together a programme of events for the centenary of votes for women. The bill which allowed women over 30 the right to vote for the first time received royal assent on the 7th February 1918. If anyone has ideas to offer about how we can celebrate this centenary then please email Kate firstname.lastname@example.org
