I was so excited to be running a workshop at the Women’s Voice Women’s Votes Festival for women at the University of Suffolk. I didn’t know what to expect before I arrived, but WOW it was something else.
Feminist conferences have a terrible and often deserved reputation of being full of white middle class women, just like me. But this was completely different, such a huge age range and diversity, children and even a few men. They had an amazing programme lined up which was all about celebrating women as well recognising the challenges still facing women today. There was music, drama and art, workshops on singing, law, economics and everything in between. What a HUGE achievement for the coordinating group, I was so proud to be part of it. Thank you so much.
