About The Event

Elizabeth Filippouli, Livia Firth and Annabel Karmel discuss how women are not just able to inspire each other, but also to motivate and reinvent our world.

Filippouli has brought together a collection of letters written by accomplished women from around the world - politicians, royalty, actors, authors, activists and more - that are addressed to a woman who means something to each of them. The letters are based on the women’s personal histories and experiences, drawing attention to social issues such as gender equality, homelessness, war, LGBTQ activism, mental health, Covid19 and the refugee crisis.

Among the contributors are Firth, whose letter is ‘to the women who shaped me, among them Annie Lennox and Carole Cadwalladr’, and Karmel, who writes to her daughter Lara Karmel.

This event begins with pre-recorded readings of some of the letters by Kate Winslet, Suzanne Packer and others followed by our panel discussion chaired by Jenny Lacey.
