We’re not Finished! A look at women in activism and protest throughout the East End

The East End of London has been a hub of activism throughout history. It is traditionally a working class area that has provided hundreds of thousands of people with employment opportunities through its industries including the docks, factories and traditional trades such as textiles and market trading. This plethora of jobs has attracted many communities to the area, making it a diverse place to live and work.

Among the many political figures who have lived in and come from and worked in the East End, there have been many social movements and events to solidify the East End as a political area and associated with social change this talk will explore some of these campaigns and some of stories from women who have been involved.
