Join us for a talk by Lisa Wright who was one of the first women to be ordained in March 1994 and also one of the first ordained deacon seven years before that in 1987.
Her talk will explore her experiences as a priest and about the early history of the Movement for the Ordination of Women, which was founded in 1979 campaigning for women’s ordination until 1994.
There will also be a chance to have a look at some of the archives we hold on the Movement of the Ordination of Women.
The British Library of Political and Economic Science (@LSELibrary) was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
