Hello and welcome to the first weekly blog for Feminist Events!
Each week I will post any events that I've found around the web for feminists in London. Hopefully it'll be a fun and diverse mix. Very generally, the aim is make it easy for people to find grassroots groups and events to attend, whether you're a newbie or seasoned professional, so please, send me anything that you like, from academic debate to zombie feminist theatre.
(I made that last one up, but if anyone is running a zombie feminist theatre, THAT WOULD BE AMAZING.)
Joking aside, the blog/twitter feed isn't going to be recommending anything in particular, but instead act as an aggregator - all events are created equal over here. Instead, they'll be listed in date/time order. More information can be found at the links under the event listing.
