Ann Oakley book launch

Ann Oakley’s book Women peace and welfare was launched last night at St George’s Church Bloomsbury. Baroness Tessa Blackstone chaired the event and Ann spoke about how she came to write the book and some of the fascinating women in it. A packed room enjoyed celebratory guitar music and a wine reception, provided by Bookmarks bookshop, to mark the occasion of International Women’s Day.

Watch Ann Oakley talk about her inspiring women: Aletta Jacobs, Emily Hobhouse, Rosika Schwimmer and Emily Balch.
