Women: Work & Power

Women: Work & Power is a programme packed full of events and activities that celebrate the unsung women that have shaped our history and helped define our national identity.

31 May 2018 – 30 November 2018 | Visit website

In 2018, anniversaries proliferate with the much-anticipated centenaries of votes for (some) women getting the vote; the first-ever woman MP being elected; the NHS turns 70 and the first female bishop celebrates three years in post. It’s time to shout, to tell the stories of women who have led the vanguard in the struggle for gender equality as well as those who have effected change simply through doing their jobs.
 
With over 70 events, Women: Work & Power invites you unravel a sometimes surprising history, as we amplify voices never heard, and as we celebrate the extraordinary contribution of women to the world around us. Hear a series of talks curated by the Fawcett Society, all-women-musician concerts in majestic City Livery halls, improv theatre and more.
