From 'Votes for Women' to 'Time's Up', Reflections on feminism in Britain, past, present and future.

Helen will be talking about the 1918 vote and change's to women's lives in the UK since then. She will be reflecting on feminism in Britain, past, present and future.

She likes to break up her talks, asking questions as she goes along, making for very interactive sessions full of discussion about the past and what still needs to be done.
