As soon as the women’s movement started, so did campaigns for more and better childcare…
The next meeting of the Radical History Network of NE London group will focus on how pressure was put on institutions and local authorities to provide cheap, good quality provision.
There is also an important story to be told about how alternative provision was set up outside the mainstream, while sometimes the two approaches overlapped.
Come along and share your experiences, and discuss how this connects with campaigns today.
Speakers will include:
Gail Chester – The struggle for council and community nurseries in Hackney from the 1970s onwards
Ivor Kallin – When Islington nursery workers shared a platform with the miners
Andrea Francke – History of nursery campaigns at the Royal College of Art and London College of Communication
+ other contributors from campaigns in higher education and community settings
Wednesday 10th December 7.30 p.m
Wood Green Social Club 3 Stuart Crescent, N22 5NJ
