‘All too often the achievements of working class women have been excluded from the history books. Yet it was these women who often fought the hardest and had the most to lose. It is up to us to bring to life the hidden history of working class women and their great achievements. Nan Sloane takes up that challenge. She unearths the stories of women who, long before the campaign for women’s suffrage, fought for workers’ rights and played a key role in the birth of the Labour Party.’ Dawn Butler MP
Come and join us for a talk by Nan Sloane followed by a discussion. Nan is a writer and activist with extensive experience of politics, feminism and the Labour Party. As the Director of the Centre for Women and Democracy she campaigned to increase women’s participation in both civil society and politics. She has worked with women political activists in the Middle East, the Balkans and Africa as well as in the UK.
