Saturday 19 October, 2.30pm, Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street Manchester. Free.
Writer and cultural commentator Lucy Whitman, a co-founder of Rock Against Sexism, will give an illustrated history of the movement, setting it in the context of the feverish cultural and political climate of the late 1970s.
Long, long ago, in 1977, Lucy Whitman called herself Lucy Toothpaste and created a feminist, anti-racist, anti-fascist fanzine, JOLT. She joined Rock Against Racism (RAR) and wrote extensively for the RAR magazine, Temporary Hoarding, and then helped to found Rock Against Sexism (RAS), writing for and co-editing the RAS magazine, Drastic Measures. Lucy went on to write regularly for pioneering feminist magazine Spare Rib.
