At our first ever late opening, we’re exploring whether feminism has been good for the army. Discover a range of opinions and share your own.
100 years ago, women were able to join the army for the first time. In 2016, the ban on women in combat roles was lifted. Can these developments for women in the army be attributed to feminism?
At our first ever late, we’ll be exploring a wide range of views, discussing real-life experiences of women in the army, and tracking the development of feminist thought alongside developments for women in the army.
Refreshments will be available to purchase on the night.
