Women ninety years on: a quiet revolution

The Women's Library Lecture by Rt Hon Shirley Williams

Shirley Williams reflects on the ninety years since women won the vote, in the annual Women’s Library Lecture. The daughter of novelist Vera Brittain and political scientist Sir George Catlin, Baroness Williams has been immersed in politics since her childhood. A major influence in British political life for over five decades, she has been a Labour minister, notably Secretary of State for Education and Science, and founder member of the SDP and Liberal Democrats. She was created a peer in 1993, and continues her campaigning life in the House of Lords.

Please note: this event could be subject to a delayed start, if there is a late vote in the House of Lords
