The Oxford Circle Author Talk
We’re starting the year with The Oxford Circle’s Author Talk, which will be held on 6 February at Blackwell’s Oxford.
The War on Women
Sue Lloyd-Roberts was a multi award-winning BBC journalist who wrote The War on Women: And the Brave Ones Who Fight Back. She died of cancer before completing the book, the content of which was finalised by her daughter Sarah Morris.
In The War on Women, Sue brings to life many stories she had come across working as a journalist over all the world of women who have suffered, witnessed and combated oppression, discrimination and violence such as female genital mutilation, honour killings in the UK and forced marriage. She fought with them and for them until the very end.
Sarah will be speaking about The War on Women and the challenges of finalising it ready for publication, and is very happy to answer questions about it.
All profits from this event will go towards The Oxford Circle, a network of members of The Circle that are based in Oxfordshire.
Currently The Oxford Circle is supporting Nonceba, a centre in Cape Town that runs a shelter for women and children who have survived domestic violence or have been the victims of human trafficking.
Tickets for this event are £10 and include a glass of wine or soft drink on arrival.
Event time: 6 February, 7 – 9 pm. Doors open at 6:45 pm.
Event location: Blackwell’s Oxford. 48-51 Broad Street, Oxford, OX1 3BQ.
