Come to our next meeting of our monthly socialist feminist reading group, hosted by Workers' Liberty members - open to all!

We'll be reading chapter 6 of Janine Booth's new book 'Minnie Lansbury: Suffragette, Socialist, Rebel Councillor', and will be joined by Janine for the discussion!

From the blurb: "This is a story of a remarkable young women who became a popular champion and whose tragically early death broke the hearts of her family, friends, comrades and community. It is also the story of Eastern European immigrant Jews is Cockney London, of the fight against poverty and for enfranchisement, of opposing war while defending its victims, of embracing revolutionary possibilities and of defying bad laws".
