Do We Still Need a Women's Movement? public debate in Leeds to mark centenary of women’s vote

Authors and academics in gender, education and the world of work will discuss the position of women in 21st century Britain, and ask whether we still need a movement for women's rights

Leeds, United Kingdom, 25 October 2018 – 100 years on from the passing of the law that allowed women the vote for the first time, a free public event in Leeds city centre on the evening of Tuesday 6 November will debate the contentious question of ‘Do We Still Need a Women's Movement?’.

A century since the historic victory for women's rights, has gender equality now been achieved or is there work still to be done? 

As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, a number of academics in gender, education, and the world of work will discuss the position of women in 21st century Britain, and ask whether we still need a movement for women's rights. 

Confirmed speakers:

Eva Tutchell and John Edmonds, co-authors of The Stalled Revolution: Is Equality for Women an Impossible Dream?

Joanna Williams, author Women Vs Feminism: Why We All Need Liberating from the Gender Wars

Moderator: Donna Lee, Professor of International Political Economy, Manchester Metropolitan University
