About

An evening of lively discussions with four of the UK's most inspirational women to celebrate International Women's Day and to launch the University of London's 'Leading Women' campaign honouring the nine pioneering undergraduate women who joined the university 150 years ago. The debate - "Breaking the silence: women, leadership and #MeToo" - is being organised by the School of Advanced Study, and takes place at the Camden Centre, Camden Town Hall, on 8 March. Professor Sarah Churchwell, author, journalist, critic and the School of Advanced Study's public engagement chair, will lead the panel which includes: Alexandra Pringle, editor in chief of Bloomsbury Books; Catherine Mayer, writer and founder of the Women's Equality Party; Ayesha Hazarika MBE, commentator and former Labour political adviser; and Kate Maltby, critic, columnist and scholar. These women are not only changing the world in business, politics and academia, their stories epitomise the international #MeToo campaign. They will discuss the challenges and problems facing women and leadership, particularly in light of the problems of sexual harassment and assault raised by the #MeToo campaign. Panel members will also discuss the strategies they used to overcome their own obstacles, and will look to the future. The hour-long panel event begins at 6.30pm, is open to all and will be followed by a networking and drinks reception until 9pm. Please come and join the conversation, and bring a friend.
