Deeds Not Words: a talk by Helen Pankhurst at Discovery Centre

On the 100th anniversary of some women getting the vote, Helen Pankhurst – great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst, and herself a leading women's rights campaigner – charts how women's lives have changed over the last century, and offers a powerful and positive argument for a new way forward.

Dr Helen Pankhurst is a women's rights activist and senior advisor to CARE International UK, based in the UK and in Ethiopia. Her work in Ethiopia focuses on the interests and needs of women and girls. In the UK she is a public speaker and writer on feminist issues. Her book Deeds Not Words (Sceptre) came out February 2018.

This talk explores the major themes of politics, money, family & identity, violence and culture. Helen Pankhurst combines historical insight with inspiring argument, and reveals how far women have come since the suffragettes, how far we still have to go, and how we might get there.
