Event description

Description

We all know about Emmeline Pankhurst, but what about Sophia Duleep Singh who became a key revolutionary in the suffragette movement? Or Ida B. Wells who refused to give up a spot on a white woman's train car 71 years before Rosa Parks? How about the first woman to run for President of the United States - Victoria Woodhull, who ran in 1872? Change doesn’t come quickly: for all the women we hear about, there were countless others who came before them that pushed at the boundaries of their times. They may not have succeeded and may not be the ones that we remember, but they put a stone in the path so that one day, it would be ready for another woman to walk on.

This event is all about blowing your mind with incredible stories of fearless women: women whose achievements we wouldn’t be here without. We want to remind you that showing up does count, that the changes you make today may not break the glass ceiling but they will make a pretty big crack. We hope you leave with that fire in your belly burning just a little bit brighter.

As with our other events, our speakers are a diverse group of people who want to shout about the women who make them feel excited about the world. Come and share or listen, bring a supportive male friend, and join this new community of people who want to live in a world full of feminists (fem-i-nist / n. A person who believes in equality between men and women… YOU!).

We’re proud to be sponsored by Eaton House for this event, so the event is free with a cash bar to enjoy on-site. We’d also like to thank EmceeDime for providing the design for our event poster.
