Hope that you've had a wonderful weekend! I had a fab weekend at the Feminist Library's Women Studies Without Walls - amazing to see so many feminists in one place! This is my last blog as the typist behind Feminist Events, as I am off to Australia for a year! It's been a fun few months seeing what's going on - please stay tuned as the blog will continue!
A couple of links for you - this is a guide to all V-Day events in London, on their website - http://tinyurl.com/1billionrising234. In addition, @RachelHills and @SarahGraham7 are thinking of organsing some feminist meet-ups - check out their Twitter for more info!
