Explore the first shoots of feminism and the fight for equality in the 1960s, in a talk by Virginia Nicholson.
To close our season on radical women, Virginia Nicholson, granddaughter of Vanessa Bell, discusses her new book ‘How Was it For You? Women, Sex, Love and Power in the 1960s’. It was the decade of peace, love, psychedelia and strange pleasures, but also of misogyny, violation and discrimination – half a century before feminism rebranded. A new movement was emerging and discovering a new cause: equality.
Virginia Nicholson is an English non-fiction author known for her works of women’s history in the first half of the 20th century and has been called “one of the great social historians of our time”.
