Events: London Anarchist Book Fair and After

25 October 2014, London: 
Emily and Gabriel from Peace News will be talking about the 
feminist opponents of World War One
at Feminism in London 2014. 1.30 – 2pm in the Jeffrey Hall.

40th Anniversary of a Women’s Photographic Collective, 1974-1980

Sunday 12th October 2014, 2-5pm

Chats Palace, 42-44 Brooksby’s Walk, London E9 6DF

The Hackney Flashers Collective was active as a feminist agitprop group in
London 1974 -1980. The group produced two photographic/graphic exhibitions
addressing complex ideas about women’s lives as workers and as mothers,
inside and outside the home:  Women and Work and Who’s Holding the Baby.

To mark the recent launch of the Hackney Flashers website the group are
calling a meeting of the generations: how did they work as a collective in
the 1970s? How is the struggle for the most basic of women’s rights being
carried on now, forty years later?  A rare chance to see some of the
exhibition panels from  the time and to discuss work still to be done.
Free and open to all. Should be exciting!

(some bits Iabout the group here: )
