August 17 – A Woman’s Place & others

In partnership with the Working Class Movement Library, this will be an evening of short films and discussion dealing with the women’s movement.

Amongst other films, the evening will include A Woman’s Place – a 20 minute film that covers the first Women’s Liberation Conference in February 1970.

 

Also part of the evening is Six Sides of a Square which documents the lives of working mothers in 1966. The film introduces an actress, an office cleaner and a mother who chooses to stay at home and hear from the narrator about how it is beginning to ‘look like a woman’s world’.

The films will be followed by discussion led by Louise Livesey, a lecturer in women’s studies at Ruskin College, Oxford.

The screening is being supported by Salford TUC.

Film starts at 7.45. Entry to film £3 or £2 for unwaged, low waged or students.
