Women: Work and Power
Women: Work and Power is a programme packed full of events and activities that lament or celebrate the unsung women that have shaped our history and helped define our national identity.
In 2018, anniversaries proliferate with the much-anticipated centenaries of votes for (some) women and the first-ever woman MP being elected; the NHS turns 70 and the first female bishop celebrates three years in post. In the City of London, a new Bishop of London, and the first ever woman to hold this role, is installed - The Right Reverend Dame Sarah Mullally.
It's time to shout, to tell the stories of women who have led the vanguard in the struggle for gender equality, as well as those who have effected change simply through doing their jobs. With over 70 events, Women: Work and Power invites you to unravel a sometimes surprising history, as we amplify voices never heard, and as we celebrate the extraordinary contribution of women to the world around us.
