COOPERATIVE WOMEN
GILLIAN LONERGAN

Exploring the involvement of women in co-operatives in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, barriers to engagement and methods of overcoming them. The Women's Co-operative Guild was formed in 1883 and encouraged its mainly working class members to play their full role in society alongside campaigning for reform and the improvement of living and working conditions. 

BRINGING RACE, CLASS AND SEX BACK TOGETHER
SADIA HAMEED

Race, class and sex struggles were once joint together, they have been torn apart, as it is far easier to control communities divided.

We will explore how and when these divides began and how we join them together once again.
