1918|2018|2118 – What does the next 100 years hold for Women?

On International Women's Day, in the year that we mark 100 years of women's suffrage, the Victoria BID is hosting a lunch discussion to consider the role of women in business today and what more needs to happen in the future to achieve true equality.

The BID is encouraging both men and women to attend this high profile panel discussion, which is sure to be enlightening and compelling against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement and BBC equal pay row.

At the event on the 8th we will also be screening a new short film, called ‘Deeds Not Words’, made collaboratively by Combination Dance, Rambert Dance company, The National Archives and the Victoria BID. The 3 minute film, named after the motto of the suffragettes, looks at the long struggle the suffragettes had to achieve equal voting rights and in particular the journey made by Emily Davison who left from Victoria Station on the day she was fatally injured at Epsom Downs racecourse at the Derby.

Please note: A sandwich lunch will be provided
