Speaking on Autistic Workers, Trade Unions and Solidarity

This is the sound recording of my talk about Autistic Workers, Trade Unions and Solidarity at the AutSpeak event on Thursday 12 January in London. The overall theme of the event was Building an Autistic Community. It was well-attended, and after the four panellists had finished speaking, a lively question-and-answer session took place.

George Lansbury, Minnie Lansbury and Their Relevance to Modern Feminism

Text of the George Lansbury Memorial Lecture, given on 16 November 2016 at Queen Mary University, London.

So I’m going to tell you who Minnie Lansbury was, and as we walk through her life, and its intersection with George’s, we will find relevance and lessons for modern-day feminism.
