Great to meet Roz Hardie this morning and talk about OBJECT, Rooms of our Own and of course, ourselves! (the personal IS the political)
I was Chair of OBJECT for a while when Sasha Rakoff was CEO and so impressed by the thinking and activism of OBJECT members and supporters. Great to hear Roz’s ideas about taking the organisation ever forward.
OBJECT currently has a small office in Walthamstow, and we talked about whether they might possibly take space in Rooms of our Own in the future. Roz’s current thought is that OBJECT needs to be more central and in particular as a national lobbying organisation nearer Westminster.
However Roz thinks Rooms is a great idea and is fully supportive of more women’s spaces.
