Working Families presents an evening with Sarah Morris, daughter of Sue Lloyd-Roberts
The War on Women and the brave ones who fight back
By Sue Lloyd Roberts
Sue Lloyd-Roberts was a multi award winning BBC journalist, and is widely recognised as one of the most acclaimed television journalists of her generation. She wrote ‘The War on Women: and the Brave Ones Who Fight Back’, but died of cancer before completing the book, the content of which was finalised by her daughter Sarah.
In ‘The War on Women’, Sue brings to life many stories she had come across, working as a journalist all over the world – stories of women who have suffered, witnessed and combatted oppression, discrimination and violence, including female genital mutilation, honour killings in the UK and forced marriage. She fought with them and for them until the very end.
Sue’s daughter Sarah Morris will be in conversation with Working Families CEO Sarah Jackson about ‘The War on Women’ and the challenges of finalising it ready for publication, and will be very happy to answer questions about it.
All profits from this uplifting and positive event will go towards Working Families. Tickets are £20 each, and include a glass of wine or a soft drink on arrival.
