LIF presents: Feminism & Activism: how can we create change?
14th May 2015, 7pm-10pm, 37 Camden High Street, NW1 7JE.
What’s the best way to challenge the systems of oppression in society? Come along to share your thoughts and find out how others go about fighting back! Hear from leading UK campaigners who have joined forces to take a closer look at where their frontlines meet, discussing their successes and failures and asking how we can create change.
If you can’t make it, we’ll be live-streaming to our Twitter from around 7.30pm, and we’ll post videos and pictures up afterwards.
