Unspeakable Women event at Cheltenham, 11 March 2017

Unspeakable Women: Critical Sisters’ ground-breaking launch event will bring together the insights and experience of three brilliant and proudly outspoken women. A panel discussion will be followed by a workshop with a focus on feminism and free speech.

Julie Bindel Julie Bindel is a fearless campaigner for the rights of women and renowned journalist. Her conviction that it is impossible to change sex has led to calls for her to be no-platformed. Julie has been banned from university campuses across the U.K. and the National Union of Students officially considers her ‘vile.’
Maryam Namazie Maryam Namazie is a prominent atheist who founded the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain. Maryam has been no-platformed across university campuses in the UK for her principled stance on religion. In 2015 she was harassed and silenced by Islamist attendees at an event to explore apostasy at Goldsmiths Students’ Union.
Sarah Ditum Sarah Ditum is a comment writer for the New Statesman, book reviewer for the Guardian and others, TV and radio pundit and a self-described ‘anti-fun feminist.’ Last year she found herself at the centre of a media storm following the cancellation of an NSPCC ‘Dare to Debate’ event about treatments for children who identify as trans.

    I’m coming. I attended my first feminist conference, Thinking Differently, last summer in London. I was a bit apprehensive, being straight and in my fifties.(got chucked out of my local feminist group in my teens for wearing make up and having PIV sex), but I had an amazing time and everyone made me feel so welcome. I told Magdalen Bern I was a massive fan and she laughed like a drain.
