Gender and Law at Durham (GLAD) supports, develops and enhances research and teaching in the broad field of Law & Gender, primarily in Durham Law School, but also across Durham University as a whole. “GLAD Conversations” are annual Q&A events, with significant figures across feminist and LGBT activism, politics and law. Previous speakers include Stephen Whittle OBE, Lord Lester QC, Vera Baird QC, Frances Crook and Baroness Kennedy QC.
This year, GLAD warmly invites you to an afternoon conversation with Finn Mackay, founder of the London Feminist Network, and a leading figure in contemporary feminist politics and activism. You can find out more about Finn from her website, which includes links to her article and interviews, here and can watch an interview with Finn Mackay on You Tube.
The London Feminist Network (LFN) is a women-only feminist networking and campaigning organisation that is based in London, UK. LFN was formed in 2004 to unite London-based feminist groups and individuals in action! The conversation will be a great opportunity to find out more about LFM as well as discussing the key issues for feminist today in both the UK and internationally. For more information about the LFN click here.
The event will be held on Tuesday 7th February 2012, Joachim Room, St Hild & Bede, 3.30-5.30pm. Places are free but bookings are essential. The event will be followed by an informal drinks reception.
Finn has also agreed to hold an informal workshop for feminist activists from 2pm. The workshop is an opportunity to learn more from Finn about organising feminist groups, events and campaigns. If you’r e interested in attending the workshop, please clearly state this when booking your place.
If you have any questions about the event, contact Dr Erika Rackley.
