Tickets £6.00

Join us at the Owl Bookshop in Kentish Town for a talk with Natasha Walter and Harriet Wistrich who will be discussing their own ideas about activism while drawing on stories and anecdotes from their own careers and the history in Natasha’s book, which includes the anti-Nazi activism of the 1930s and the Nuclear Disarmament Movement.

Description

Natasha Walter is a writer of both fiction and non-fiction, a journalist and human rights activist. She is a graduate of Cambridge and Harvard, and has worked as a columnist, reviewer and feature writer
for the Guardian, Vogue and Independent. Natasha founded the charity Women for Refugee
Women in 2007. Her books include The New Feminism and Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism. Before the Light Fades is just out in paperback and is a moving memoir about losing her mother as well as honouring the legacy of a family whose members struggled bravely against some of the worst crises of the twentieth century.

Harriet Wistrich is an English solicitor and radical feminist who specialises in human-rights cases, particularly cases involving women who have been sexually assaulted or who have killed their violent partners. In her new book Sister in Law she tells the shocking stories of some of those who have come to her for assistance and shines a feminist light on the landscape of arcane laws and byzantine systems, skewed towards male behaviour and responses, through which she has steered them.
