Historians Dr Laura Beers, Dr Celia Donert, Dr Helen McCarthy, Dr Ingrid Sharp and Professor Glenda Sluga reflect on the past, present and future of women’s transnational organising. Dr Helen Pankhurst, of CARE International and the granddaughter of suffragette leader Sylvia Pankhurst, contributes a practitioner perspective to this virtual roundtable.
This latest addition to H&P's new dialogues coincides with events at the Mile End Institute, Queen Mary University of London, to commemorate the Women's Peace Congress in the Hague, in April 1915, when women gathered across enemy lines to develop a unique vision of peace, gender equality and human rights.
