Event 4: Bad Girls and Brave Women: Reflections on a Centenary

Alexander McKenzie Stage

In this special event marking a hundred years since (some) women won the vote, writer and activist Shami Chakrabarti, biographer Rachel Holmes and author Caitlin Davies will discuss the rich history of women in Britain from exceptional political pioneers to non-conformist rebels to the invisible women who don’t usually make it into the history books. Along the way, we will reflect on how much progress has been made, the divides that still exist between women with power and women without, and the high price of a life in politics.
