GUEST SPEAKER LINDA BELLOS
You are invited to attend RECC's Annual General Meeting on Monday 16 July. This is a special meeting for two reasons. It is the 50th anniversary of the RECC, although it was called something different then. The other was the winning of the vote to (most) women and the extension of the franchise of the vote to both men and women to a much wider class and financial spectrum, 100 years ago. Thus it is very timely to hear from our guest speaker, Linda Bellos, who will be looking back over those 100 years and asking
Women – How Far Have We Come?
Linda Bellos is one of the UK’s leading equality law specialists. She has made it her life’s work to understand equality law and bring it alive for people who need to know how to use it.
For many years Linda has been very politically active as a socialist, feminist, black lesbian. She became particularly well known as the leader of Lambeth Council between 1986 and 1988. She went on to establish herself as a diversity trainer and was awarded an OBE in 2006 for services to diversity. She runs her own consultancy and is a regular campaigner, attempting to hold those in power to account.
There will be light refreshments available.
