join us for our third dinner: a conversation on persistence at The London Cooking Project in Battersea on Friday 23rd November.
From activism to politics and the age of Me Too, female persistence has never felt more important. And so, for our next dinner, we will be celebrating three women who have created change - in their own lives and beyond.
We'll be hearing from:
Special guest Nimco Ali, social activist, feminist, FGM campaigner and the co-founder of Daughters of Eve - a non-profit which provides education and raises awareness about FGM. She has worked to re-frame FGM as child abuse in the UK and, last year, she stood for the Women's Equality Party in the general election. She has been listed as a Woman of the Year by Red magazine and appeared on the annual Woman's Hour Power List.
Grace Campbell, activist and co-founder of the Pink Protest. Grace will be talking to us about the importance of female activism, organising protests and why she campaigns for change.
Charly Cox, poet and MQ mental health ambassador. Charly will be chatting about raising the awareness of mental health, persisting to improve her own and her new book She Must Be Mad.
Rebecca Armstrong, features editor at i news. Almost five years ago, Rebecca's husband was hit by a car, changing their lives for ever. Since then, she has been 'fighting for him, cheering him up, rolling with the punches and cobbling a life together.' She has written about their journey in a column for the i and will talk to us about her inspring reaction to his accident.
