We like to be active at Londonist, encouraging you all to expore your back passages, go crawling (culturally, of course), get scientific and / or musical. We also like a bit of activist action and this Saturday is Feminist Fightback 2006, a one-day activist conference for the feminist movement at the School of Oriental and African Studies.
Organised by Education Not for Sale Women, the focus is to get back to grassroots campaigning, to do more than just talk about how to make change happen and how to build a feminist movement that is not just about lifestyle choices but at the very heart of political debate.
The day's conference starts at 11.30am and guest speakers include Abby Lee, author of Girl With A One Track Mind, representatives from the sacked Gate Gourmet workers, spokeswomen from the International Union of Sexworkers and from the Organisation of Women's Freedom in Iraq - it's a packed day of thought-provoking talks, stalls and exhibitions. The conference is free and open to all (including men).
Feminist Fightback 2006, Saturday 21 October, School of Oriental and African Studies, 11.30am to 7.00pm, free. For more information on the conference and the Education Not for Sale Network, go to the website here.
