The Oxford Circle Author Talk
We started 2018 with The Oxford Circle’s Author Talk, which was 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 talked about The War on Women and the challenges of getting it ready for publication.
All profits from this event went 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.
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.
