Laura-Bates-LP.jpg(CNS): The Business and Professional Women’s Club of Grand Cayman will be hosting the internationally renowned feminist Laura Bates later this month as part of the 2013 Annie Hudlah Bodden Lecture Series. Bates, from the UK is the founder of the “Everyday Sexism Project” which is an ever-increasing collection of over 35,000 women’s general experiences of gender imbalance, sexism and other stories that reflect the continued problem of inequality among the sexes the world over.  Andrea Williams, the BPW president said the group was delighted Bates was coming to share her knowledge and passion about combatting sexism in the workplace. 

“This lecture will be of interest to all working men and women,” she said.

Established in 2001, the Annie Hudlah Bodden Lecture Series is designed to educate and empower individuals for the betterment of the Cayman Islands.

"Annie Huldah Bodden, OBE, was one of Cayman's most influential women,” Williams said. “She was the first female auditor of the Cayman Islands Government, the first female elected Member of the Legislative Assembly and the first Caymanian female to be awarded an…OBE. I believe she would be thrilled to have Laura Bates as a speaker under the lecture series named after her.”

The event will be held on 28 June from 12 to 2pm at Hollywood Theatres, Camana Bay.
