An oldie from the 1980s, a decade of Thatcher, Reagan, crap haircuts and appallingly sexist washing powder adverts. They are not exactly bastions of feminism now, but in the 1980s we were subjected to images of women descending into hysterical panic because 'The dirt says hot but the label says not' (Ariel), their whites had failed the 'window test' (Daz) or were not 'bluey-white'.
Socialist feminism! Everyday sexism! Women's struggles past and present!
A public meeting/discussion, organised by Lewisham Workers' Liberty
Venue: Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archive, 277 Bancroft Rd, London E1 4DQ.
Free entry. All welcome.
With speakers, refreshments, and copies of the pamphlet available for just £2.50 per copy.
In 2012, the End Violence Against Women coalition published a poll showing the extent of women's fear of travelling on London Transport. RMT issued a press release, including a quote from Janine, which you can read here.
Janine performed at this annual celebration of International Women's Day. There were also excellent guest speakers, music and an exhibition.
This resolution was carried unanimously by RMT Women's Conference 2017.
