Clare Debenham book launch

In the shop:
Thursday, April 10th at 18:30 – 19:30

Join political historian Birth Control and the Rights of WomenDr Clare Debenham as she launches Birth Control And The Rights Of Women, her new book exploring the nationwide campaign for birth control – including Marie Stopes’ free “contraception caps” – after women were granted the vote in 1918.

The book, published by IB Tauris, explores a hugely important grass roots social movement, its threat to Victorian ideas about female sexuality, and its empowerment for women everywhere. It features brand new archival material in the forms of memoirs, personal papers and press cuttings.

The launch will be an informal affair, and all are welcome. We have wine and cake, and – crucially – on the night only, attendees can buy the book for £25 rather than the usual retail price of £59.95.
