Sisters Doing It For Themselves: An Introduction

London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

18/03/2020 18:30 - 20:00

An introduction to the project ran by Women’s Resource Centre looking at the history of the women’s voluntary and community sector after Erin Pizzey set up the first women’s refuge. Find out about the oral histories recorded from key women figures and feminist leadership training. The women being recorded include: Pragna Patel, Southall Black Sisters; Lee Eggleston, Rape Crisis England & Wales; Dr Akima Thomas, Women and Girls Network; Ranjit Kaur, Rights of Women; Professor Liz Kelly CBE, Child and Woman Abuse Studies, London Metropolitan University; Marai Larasi MBE, Imkaan; Sarbjit Ganger, Asian Women’s Resource Centre; Naana Otoo-Oyortey MBE, FORWARD; Rosalind Bragg, Maternity Action; Mary-Ann Stephenson, Women’s Budget Group; Sarbrina Qureshi, Million Women Rise; Joyce Kallevik, WISH. The Women’s Resource Centre was established in 1984, originally as a network of teaching professionals to promote anti-sexist, anti-racist teaching materials in the educational curriculum and eventually evolved in to a women's centre. In response to consultation with organisations in the women’s voluntary and community sector (WVCS) in the late 1990s, WRC took on its current role as an umbrella body providing capacity building and support for women’s organisations, and registered as a charity in 1998. Funded by the Lottery Fund.
