Inaugural Astrea Conference

Our second annual conference took place on 23 June 2016 at Mary Ward House in Bloomsbury.

On the day of the Brexit vote, amid flooding and travel chaos in London, we heard a number of empowering speeches from some truly inspiring women, including Women's Equality Party Leader, Sophie Walker and feminist campaigner and writer Caroline Criado-Perez.
