Virginia Nicholson in conversation with Elizabeth Buchan: How Was it For You? - Women, Sex, Love and Power in the 1960s

Wed 9 Oct

The Guildhall


Free love and mini-skirts, Swinging London and Beatlemania, the Lady Chatterley trial: the 1960s is remembered as a revolutionary decade. But did the world really change for women? Was the availability of ‘the pill’ a liberation, or a trap? How do women view the age of peace, love and Psychedelia?

Based on original research from women from a variety of backgrounds Nicholson looks at the legacy of the 1960s. How Was It For You? is a moving, shocking book about tearing up the world and starting again. For women the world would never be the same again.
