Talk, Q&A and Book Signing.

“Deeds Not Words” reveals how far women have come since the suffragettes, how far we still have to go, and how we might get there. Each of the five chapters within the book explores a different theme; politics, money, family & identity, violence and culture. The voices of both pioneers and ordinary women are woven into the analysis which ends with suggestions about how to better understand and strengthen feminist campaigning and with aims for the future.
Helen is a women’s rights activist and senior advisor to CARE International, based in the UK and in Ethiopia. She has extensive media experience including national and international radio and print interviews, and was involved in the 2015 film Suffragette.
