Thinking on Sunday was launched as a new series of events with different themes to the Sunday Lectures. These interesting and stimulating sessions have a talk or presentation followed by Q&A, debate and discussion. The speakers are experts in their field, and/or have a passion for subject. Especially popular with our ethical society members, Thinking on Sunday is open to the public and promises to motivate and nourish the mind!

Graham Hutchings offers a vivid, gripping account of 1949: the year in which China abruptly changed course and pulled the rest of world history along with it. The overthrow of Chiang Kai-shek’s government by Mao Zedong reverberated across the world, resulting in long-lasting consequences that are still being felt today.

March 2021

Forty years of feminism and still women do the majority of the housework. Why? Sally Howard investi-gates how we got here and what the future could look like for feminism’s final frontier: the domestic la-bour gap.
