Urania, Esther Roper and Eva Gore-Booth

Hosted by the LSE Library

Online public event


Jenny White

Community activist and researcher

What we can learn today from the radical queer zine Urania, published 1916 to 1940?

Community activist and researcher Jenny White celebrates two key editors of Urania, the radical zine published from 1916 to 1940 which sought to abolish the gender binary. Esther and Eva are buried in the same grave in Hampstead with an ode to lesbian icon Sappho carved on their headstone. Jenny will share how their stories have inspired and engaged people today.

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.
