Lawyers Against Poverty is delighted to host a talk with Sarah Morris, daughter of Sue Lloyd-Roberts who wrote The War on Women: And the Brave Ones who Fight Back.
Sue was a widely acclaimed and multi-award winning journalist who sadly died before finishing her book, which was subsequently finalised by Sarah.
In The War on Women, Sue brings to life many stories she came across in the course of her work all over the world – stories of women who have suffered, witnessed and combatted oppression, discrimination and violence.
Proceeds of the event will be donated to Lawyers Against Poverty, which uses its Justice Fund to support organisations working to assert and advance women’s rights as well as land and refugee rights.
Join us on Thursday 13 June (18:30-20:30 at Simmons & Simmons, One Ropemaker Street, London EC2Y 9SS) to hear Sarah talk about this wonderful book and her mother, who fought for and alongside these women until the very end.
