March is not just about International Women's Day but also the home of Women's History Month, so join us to celebrate the women who made history and how their efforts are still making waves today.

Women played a significant role in the founding of the Labour Party but have often have been almost completely written out of our history until our very own Nan Sloane published her 2018 book, The Women In the Room: Labour’s Forgotten History.

Nan is currently writing her second book about radical, reforming and revolutionary women at the turn of the nineteenth century which is set to be published later this year.

Kiran Mahil will lead this "in conversation" style event, with Nan also reading to us from The Women in the Room. Discussions will centre on women's role in Labour's foundation, with questions also invited from the floor.

Kiran, originally from Birmingham is now a secondary school leader in East London, as well as LWN Secretary.  Before her career change into history teaching, Kiran was the Labour Party's National Equalities Officer, at the time of Labour’s Equality Act. She also worked for Rt. Hon. Yvette Cooper MP, where she was part of the team who revealed that women were being hardest hit by austerity cuts.

LWN is proud to stand on the shoulders of these inspirational women, it is our duty to make sure their names are heard, known and understood far and wide.  So join Nan and Kiran to hear extract of Nan's book and join in the conversation on Friday, 26th March from 8pm for an evening of feminist history within our Party.
