Women’s Library (London) Events Programme 2008

The Women’s Library’s events programme for Spring/Summer 2008 is now

Coming up soon is the ‘Out of the Archives’ series, exploring the lives
of inspiring women whose papers the Library holds. Judith Bourne will be
talking about Helena Normanton on 6 March, Jennian Geddes discusses
Louisa Garrett Anderson on 10 April, and Sheila Rowbotham is in
conversation with Sally Alexander on 17 April.

On 27 April there’s a free debate, joint with fpa (Family Planning
Association), on the impact that pornography is having on relationships
today. In our Annual Lecture on 13 May, Rt Hon Shirley Williams will be
reflecting on women’s progress 90 years after the vote was won. A
special display of suffrage banners features in summer’s ‘What Women
Want’ exhibition, celebrating the centenary of many of them; Elizabeth
Crawford talks about the march they were made for on 14 June. There are
also several women’s history walks and some cracking books to get your
teeth into through our Reading Group.

Don’t forget:the exhibition ‘Sinners, scroungers, saints: lone mothers,
past and present’ ends on the 29 March. The Family Day on 1 March would
be a great day to visit, when there’ll be frequent guided tours as well
as an Artist’s Talk by Jo Holland. Other free drop-in tours are being
held on Saturday 23 February, 12pm; Thursday 13 March, 6.30pm; Saturday
29 March, 12pm.
