Do It Like A Woman… And Change The World
with Caroline Criado-Perez
Sunday 17 May
Come and hear from one of the most vocal and tenacious campaigners of our generation and celebrate the world’s pioneering women. Caroline Criado-Perez, named one of The Guardian’s People of the Year, is the woman who took on the Bank of England, Twitter and the criminal justice system. Presenting from her book Do it Like a Woman, hear Caroline tell her story of campaigning for women’s rights and dealing with cyber backlash. From the female fighter pilot in Afghanistan who escaped from the Taliban to the anti-FGM campaigners in the UK, come and rejoice in private heroisms and public triumphs in this inspiring manifesto for women everywhere.
