Happy Friday feminist friends,
The weekend is here-and great news to report- yesterday Caroline Criado Perez secured a victory for feminists nationwide, with the announcement of the famous author Jane Austen to be included on the new ten pound bank note!!
To continue the high note of the weekend, don’t forget that “Off The Shelf” is back soon, and there are a whole host of feminist related events featuring in the programme!!
Something for everyone- with an international theme- don’t leave a void in your diary on Sunday 8th October at 2.00 pm as Dr Sunita Toor will be presenting a talk on “Justice for Women and Girls” at The Void Cinema Sheffield Hallam University!!
Continuing the literary theme we started this post with on 9th October you could be facing Dr Amber Regis for a talk on the many profiles of Charlotte Bronte http://www.offtheshelf.org.uk/event/charlotte-brontes-face-dr-amber-regis/
On Thursday 12th October at The Quaker Meeting House from 7.30 pm Julie Bindel will be hosting a topical debate on “Abolishing the Sex Worker Myth” which has been organised by our very own Sheffield Feminist Network -because we are good to you like that!!! http://www.offtheshelf.org.uk/event/abolishing-the-sex-work-myth-julie-bindel/
Harriet Harman will be promoting her fantastic book “A Woman’s Work” describing her phenomenal political journey from Peckham to Parliament on Thursday 26th October at 7.30 pm- a must for any feminist wanting to venture into the political arena!!
