A Radical Feminist Walking Tour of Derry

In Celebration of the Life of Helen Harris Women Activists for Social Justice invite you to join us and Anne Crilly, feminist, historian and lecturer on a feminist walking tour of Derry.

The journey will take you from the burning at the stake of Cecily Jackson in 1729, to the almost forgotten meetings of the Suffragettes in Derry and will include stories of Eleanor Marx and the Derry shirt workers.

The echoes of the past meet the struggles of today!

Join us for stories, forgotten histories and an analysis of why contemporary feminists including Cathy Harkin and Helen Harris posed questions about justice, equality and feminism that are as relevant today as they were to our sisters of the past.

Meet: Guildhall Square,
Saturday, September 24th at 1.30pm
Walk will last for approx. one hour
All are welcome, women and men!
