Following last year's tour de force, Janine returns to Ealing with some socialist feminist ranting poetry.
Women in history
Be inspired by over 100 years of east London women fighting for change (and winning!)
Join the East End Women's Museum and East End Sisters Uncut for an afternoon of short talks and conversations about the different ways east London women have challenged sexism, racism, exploitation, and injustice then and now. Share your ideas and learn some new ones.
Janine leads a guided walking tour of east London, tracing the life and struggles of Minnie Lansbury, Jewish socialist, suffragette, campaigner for war orphans, communist and rebel councillor.
Meet at Bow Road London Underground station at 6pm ... and finishing up with chillout and chat in Victoria Park.
