Aboard the Miracle Train - Q & A with Dr Lillian Cingo 
The award-winning nurse, Dr Lillian Cingo, took healthcare to rural South Africa, on South Africa’s Phelophepa (‘good clean health’) train, which set out in 1994, with Lillian as its manager, to bring health services to remote rural communities.

Women Writers and the Suffrage Struggle: Oxford Connections
A brief talk about the movement to gain women the vote as it affected Oxford. How did the university and the town react to this movement? Did Oxford itself make any significant contribution to the movement? 

Change your words - Change Your Story
Our choice of words defines our story, so it follows that changing the words we use changes that story. Let’s put this to the test, starting with a few typical everyday comments and see how we can create a more empowering story.

Songs sung by women activists
Miranda Shaw is a local violin teacher, campaigner and cook. She will lead us in song, as we remember some of the stories and successes of women's movements and activism from the last 100 years

Inner Listening
Join us in a short guided meditation to remind us how our inner voice can support us to create change.
