International Women’s day talk: 8th March 5-7pm

2018 marks the centenary of women’s suffrage in the UK and staff and students from the School of Languages and Literature, and the School of Humanities, have collaborated on a series of events called ‘Feminism 100’ held throughout the Spring Term. The SLL International Women’s Day annual talk and debate will conclude this series on Thursday 8th March, 5pm-7pm (Edith Morley, G25)

A party to celebrate the date has been generously supported by the Vice-Chancellor’s Endowment Fund so we are able to offer wine and party food to our guests. The evening involves brief talks by three staff members (Maddi Davies – Dept of Eng Lit, Carol Fuller – IoE, and Jacqui Turner – Dept of History), each raising an equalities issue that matters to them. We would then like our students to take the floor and express their own ideas, and this will then be followed by a debate.

This event is always very well subscribed and produces strong argument and an excellent atmosphere of staff/student partnership and dialogue. Colleagues and students are warmly welcomed to the evening. There is no need to register for the evening – please just come along to EM G25, drink wine, celebrate, and join a conversation that matters to us all.

If you need any more information, please email Maddi Davies (, or any one of our student co-organisers, Imi Snell, Maeve DeBordons-Alvarez, Vicky Matthews and Jack Champion.
