Why are there so few women leaders in business, politics and across society? What can we do about the under-representation of women of colour, working-class women and disabled women? We kick off our International Women’s Day events programme with a figurehead for women’s equality, Sophie Walker.
Former politician, activist and author of ‘Five Rules For Rebellion’, Sophie will discuss what she has learned as a feminist leader and campaigner and share her five-step journey to incorporating activism into our lives and rebuilding society for and with (extra)ordinary women.
Sophie will be in conversation with broadcaster, journalist and political commentator Ayesha Hazarika. This talk will pick you up, dust you off and put the fire in your belly to change the world.
Ayesha Hazarika MBE is a award-winning comedian, Scottish broadcaster, journalist and political commentator. She is former political adviser to Gordon Brown, Ed Miliband and Harriet Harman and has been columnist for the London Evening Standard, Grazia the Scotsman and other national publications.
