Susanna Rustin: Sexed - A History of British Feminism


Susanna Rustin's book Sexed begins in the revolutionary 1790s and extends to the present day, showing how successive generations have fiercely contested what it means to be a woman.  It takes in Victorian petitioners, suffragists, the Greenham Common peace protesters, the black and Asian groups of the 1970s and 1980s, and many others.  Susanna will be in conversation with Louise Chunn, founder of welldoing.org.
