Cemetery Club: Male Allies – Historical Men Who Have Empowered Women
19th November 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm£8.68
This International Men’s Day (Thursday 19th November) join two historians for a special collaborative event!
IMD is celebrated around the world in over 60 countries and aims at highlighting the issues that affect men and boys, including promoting a positive conversation about men, manhood and masculinity.
We want to mark the day by sharing the stories and learn about some of the men who used their positions in society to aid women in the fight for empowerment and equality. Men who used their wealth to finance and stand side by side with the women’s movement, as well as those who, during the horrific suffragette protest on Black Friday, stood in solidarity with the women who suffered and the men of modern times who continue to call out casual sexism in film, television and sport.
This one hour talk will be hosted online via Zoom, a link will be sent to you on the afternoon of Thursday 19th and there will be time for questions at the end.
Becky Laxton-Bass is the founder of Women of London, a tour-guiding company that highlights, recognises and celebrates the role of historical Women across the capital and shall be conducting this talk alongside fellow tour guide and
Sheldon K. Goodman, founder of the Cemetery Club, which seeks to reinterpret cemeteries as more than places of remembrance and mourning, but as Museums of People.
Please note the ticket price will be split evenly three ways between WOL, CC and CALM, a charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, through their campaigns such as Project 84 and DontBottleItUp raise awareness of male mental health and challenge negative/toxic male stereotypes.
