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…

Conway Hall Ethical Society 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.

Conway Hall Ethical Society presents:

Freedom’s Debt: The Politics of the Atlantic Slave Trade (1672 – 1752)

Tuesday 6th October @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Conway Hall,
25 Red Lion Square, London, WC1R 4RL United Kingdom
Freedom’s Debt, the Politics of the Atlantic Slave Trade (1672 – 1752)

This talk will discuss the parts played by freedom and liberty in developing England’s contribution to the trans-Atlantic trade in enslaved Africans. It argues that Britain’s relationship with slavery has largely been viewed in terms of Britain’s contribution to the abolition of the trade. It suggests that British identity, British ideas, British institutions did much to develop the trade in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It examines the political deliberations that surrounded the Royal African Company – a monopolistic trading corporation formed to develop England’s slave trade that would become, by the middle of the eighteenth century, associated with some of the earliest embryonic arguments for the abolition of the slave trade. The lecture will examine the role that Britishness and freedom played in developing the largest forced-intercontinental migration in human history.
