Dec 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act: women's legal landmarks @ Wolfson Lecture Theatre, New Academic Building

Mari Takayanagi (Houses of Parliament) speaks on the ‘Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act’, which enabled women to join professional organisations.

In the centenary year of women’s formal admission to the legal profession, the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies has hosted a series of talks –Women Legal Landmarks – In Conversation – exploring legal landmarks for women. Such landmarks – significant achievements marking an important stage or turning point in women’s engagement with law and law reform – cover a range of topics, including the right to vote, sex discrimination, equal pay, forced marriage, prostitution, rape, twitter abuse and the ordination of women bishops as well as the life stories of a number of women who were the first to undertake key legal roles and positions.
