Gender and Law at Durham (GLAD) supports, develops and enhances research and teaching in the broad field of Law & Gender, primarily in Durham Law School, but also across Durham University as a whole. GLAD conversations are our annual Q&A discussions, with significant figures across feminist and LGBT activism, politics and law. Previous speakers include Stephen Whittle OBE, Lord Lester QC, Vera Baird QC, Frances Crook and Baroness Kennedy QC.

We are very pleased to announce that this year’s speaker will be the award-winning feminist activist Finn Mackay.

Finn is the Founder of the London Feminist Network and the revived Reclaim the Night London, Co-Founder of the Feminist Coalition against Prostitution, and Individual Winner of the 2010 Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize for Outstanding Work on Women and Violence.

A short interview with Finn can be watched here.

The event will take place on Tuesday 7th February 2012, in the  Joachim Room, St Hild & Bede College, Durham University, from 3.30 to 5.30pm. Places are free but limited. To book, please contact law.events@dur.ac.uk. The event will be followed by an informal drinks reception.

Finn has also agreed to hold an informal workshop for feminist activists from 2pm. The workshop is an opportunity to learn more from Finn about organising feminist groups, events and campaigns. If you’re interested in attending the workshop, please clearly state this when booking your place.

If you have any questions about the event, contact Dr Erika Rackley at erika.rackley@dur.ac.uk. More information about GLAD and the 2012 GLAD Conversation can be found on our website.
