Professor Tracey Loughran
Department of History
Despite the massive changes of the last half-century, gender equality is still a dream. Women are paid less than men, do more housework, and experience more sexual violence. This lecture explores the memories of women who lived through events from the sexual revolution to the #MeToo Movement, asking ‘As women, where are we now – and how did we get here?’
Lecture starts at 6pm followed by a drinks reception from 7.15pm.
Lakeside Theatre, Colchester Campus. Free admission and open to all.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS LECTURE CONTAINS SOME DISCUSSION OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE.
There will be a table for donations for the ‘Love Grace’ appeal at Professor Loughran’s lecture. This is an appeal for handbags containing hygiene items in memory of Grace Millane, who was murdered in New Zealand. Grace was from Essex and was a victim of sexual violence. You can find out more about the appeal here – https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/nov/22/love-grace-handbags-collected-in-memory-of-grace-millane
