Daring to Hope w/ Sheila Rowbotham [Book launch]

— PRSC
Book launch of Daring to hope: My life in the 1970s by Sheila Rowbotham
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Talk and q+a with author and activist Sheila Rowbotham to launch her new book Daring to Hope: My Life in the 1970s.

Sheila will be in conversation with Sue Tate who is a freelance art historian, a Trustee of the Feminist Archive South, a socialist feminist, member of the Monica Sjöö Curatorial Collective and author of Pauline Boty: Pop Artist and Woman.

Description of the book:

In this powerful memoir Sheila Rowbotham looks back at her life as a participant in the women’s liberation movement, left politics and the creative radical culture of a decade in which freedom and equality seemed possible. She reveals the tremendous efforts that were made to transform attitudes and feelings, as well as daily life. After addressing the first British Women’s Liberation Conference at Ruskin College, Oxford in 1970, she went on to encourage night cleaners to unionise, to campaign for nurseries and abortion rights. She played an influential role in discussions of socialist feminist ideas and her books and journalism attracted an international readership. Written with generosity and humour Daring to Hope recreates grassroots networks, communal houses and squats, bringing alive a shared impetus to organise collectively and to love without jealousy or domination. It conveys the shifts occurring in politics and society through kernels of personal experience. The result is a book about liberation in the widest sense.
