The London Feminist Network organised an annual conference called Feminism in London in 2008, 2009 and 2010. In 2008, about 200 women and pro-feminist men came along, in 2009 there were about 600 and in 2010 about 1,200 – and we moved from Conway Hall where the first two were held to Friends Meeting House in Euston, which is a bigger venue.
Thank you so much for putting on this event, I feel like I’ve awakened from a long and passive spell in which my feminist ideals were set aside to make way for girl power and assumed equality. I am inspired and motivated to become an active feminist. Amazing.
Hearing extremely intelligent, inspiring women (like Helena Kennedy and Rahila Gupta) speak and disagree with one another – the space for difference and sometimes conflicting voices was what made today a safe and energising environment for me.
