Sunday, June 2nd 
Feminist Walking Tour of Holborn
Remember how fabulous the FWT of Bloomsbury was? Well, we’re back and this time we’re in Holborn! As with the last tour, we’ll only be as fabulous as those who join us, so whether you want to talk about a figure/house/statue or merely lap up the information, we hope to see you!

Date: Sunday, 2nd June

Time: 2pm. The tour will last approx 2 hours. Post-walk ice cream or pub probable!

Meet: Outside the main Birkbeck building (address says Malet St., but it’s Torrington Square) in front of the revolving doors. If you’re running late or can’t spot us (or this makes no sense to you), call me on 07594 641624.

Where: We will be walking around HOLBORN! More specifically, places in the ‘Our Sisters’ London: Nineteen Feminist Walks’ book, including…

– Memorial to Margaret MacDonaldson, politician and campaigner (1870-1911)
– Birthplace of Gothic novelist Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823)
– Home of author Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923) and her “devoted friend” (ahem) Ida Constance Baker (1888-1978)
– Home of Jane Harrison, academic and first research fellow at Newnham College, Cambridge, in 1898 (1850-1928)
– Site of the meeting place of the women bookbinders union.
– Site of two of the very earliest women’s trade unions meetings in 1834.
– Headquarters of the Women’s Freedom League.

All are welcome on this tour and it’s FREE.
We look forward to seeing you!
