Inspiring Women

  • Barking Learning Centre (map)

๐ŸŒŸJoin us for an entertaining and inspiring evening sharing words of wisdom and stories of courage from local heroines past and present!  

๐ŸŒŸGuest speakers will give a brief speech about a woman with an east London connection who inspires them, including pioneering journalists, doctors, community leaders and activists.

๐ŸŒŸWe'll have a couple of 'open mic' slots for 5 minute lightning talks, if there's a woman from east London history that you'd like to shout about! Sign up on the night, first come first served.

๐ŸŒŸYou'll also have the opportunity to find out more about the East End Women's Museum, tell us what you'd like to see in it, and find out how you can get involved in our Heritage Lottery-funded project Working For Equality this summer.

Here's the Facebook event.
