Thought that some people on here might be interested. It's being organised by Education Not For Sale, a collective of socialist-feminist student women (and me, cos I'm doing the men's meeting bit).
FIGHT BACK FOR WOMEN'S LIBERATION
Feminist Fightback is a conference for feminist activists, which will be held in London on Saturday 21 October (venue tbc).
We want to build a feminist movement that fights. A feminist movement that is about activism, not just talk; about grassroots campaigning, not just lobbying; about politics, not just lifestyle choices; and about liberation for all, not just equality for a privileged few.
The conference will include a variety of speakers, discussion and activist training workshops on themes including sexual liberation, international solidarity and women's struggles as workers. Planned sessions include:
Pornography, objectification and freedom of speech
Equal pay, low pay and workers' struggle
Prostitutes: workers or victims?
The fight for abortion rights - planning actions for the next year
Building campaigning women's groups
Against war, against theocracy - Iranian women fight back
Feminist Fightback is free and open to all; see the Get Involved box for more information on how to get involved. The agenda is a work in progress - check back soon for updates. www.fightback.org.uk
