Woman Up! UK Events

Let’s talk about what it means to be a woman in the UK today.

In our media, women’s sport gets the same coverage as men’s darts. Out of 2,300 works of art in the National Gallery in 2010, only 10 were by women. And there are more men in the House of Commons today than the total number of women who have ever been elected into parliament…

RED KIMONO CONWAY WEBSITE SQUAREsm

The Red Kimono portrait series was conceived in response to the nuclear catastrophe unleashed at Fukushima Daiichi in Japan in March 2011. The work is intended as a gesture of solidarity with all those suffering as a result of this ongoing, multi-faceted catastrophe. It is also an attempt to help raise awareness, and to elicit questions, via the use of provocative, attention-grabbing imagery and a selection of memoirs and letters by evacuees from Fukishima.

The Inventor of the Zombie: The life and times of William B Seabrook: pervert, drunk, cannibal, occultist and ‘negrophile’

Tuesday 8th September @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Conway Hall,
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
Zombie

This talk will explore the life of William Seabrook (1884-1945), once a celebrated feature writer, journalist, travel writer and friend to many key artists of the New York and Paris Modernist era. Seabrook’s exotic travels led him to join the Bedouins, attempt to eat human flesh in West Africa, experiment with witchery with Aleister Crowley, pay Man Ray to photograph Lee Miller in bondage, and in his most lasting legacy travel to Haiti and publish Magic Island, the book he claimed introduced the zombie to American popular culture.

Conway Hall Ethical Society & Houses of Parliament presents:

Political Skulduggery: What Kept Charles Bradlaugh MP From Taking his Seat in Parliament?

Tuesday 8th September @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Conway Hall,
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
Charles Bradlaugh MP

Charles Bradlaugh, “Atheist, Republican and Malthusian”, was a maverick figure in late nineteenth-century radical politics. Bradlaugh needs to be remembered, not just for standing trial under the Obscene Publications Act in 1877 with Mrs Annie Besant for publishing a birth control pamphlet, but for the six-year battle he fought to take his seat as M.P. for Northampton. Extraordinarily Bradlaugh won his parliamentary seat in 1880 as a Liberal, yet it was Gladstone’s Liberal government which kept him out for the entire parliament. A bit of historical skulduggery with lessons for today.
