The book Beyond the Fragments: Feminism and the Making of Socialism (by Sheila Rowbotham, Lynne Segal and Hilary Wainwright), which first appeared in 1979, is now in its third edition, just published by Merlin Press.
Saturday 8 June 2013 (10.00-4.00) is a day to discuss consequences of the arguments in the book for the practice of the revolutionary left now. The day event is at the University of Manchester co-sponsored by the Anticapitalist Initiative, Manchester Feminist Theory Network, and the Feminist Research and Reading Group. Guest speakers will include one of the three authors of Beyond the Fragments, Lynne Segal, together with activists from the socialist and feminist movements.
It is a book, and the event is at The University of Manchester, but this was always more than a book, and we aim to connect with and support practical political action inspired by these ideas. Abuse of power and abuse of women recently on the left make work on this an urgent task. Join us. It is not a large room we have, and spaces are limited, so contact us now to be sure of a place there.
