GOOD GIRLS x helen pankhurst | 24.09.18

Some of you will have been lucky enough to see Helen Pankhurst speak at the April Good Girls Eat Dinner...

Frankly, she was so flipping interesting that we were left wanting to hear more. So she's back!

Join us at The Club at The Ivy to hear Helen Pankhurst, International Women’s Rights activist and writer, in conversation with Jo Wallace, creative director at J Walter Thompson and founder of Good Girls Eat Dinner (an event at which Helen spoke earlier this year).

The theme of this event will focus around Helen Pankhurst’s book Deeds Not Words, published this year on the 100th anniversary of (some) women receiving the right to vote in the UK. As the great granddaughter of Emeline Pankhurst - leader of the original suffragette movement - and an active women’s right campaigner herself, Helen has a powerful and positive argument for the way forward. Her knowledge combined with a genuine curiosity to take on board the opinions, ideas and experiences of others makes her a truly inspirational speaker.

This will be a highly interactive event, with questions from the floor encouraged after the initial short interview. The event will culminate with a book signing where Helen will sign copies of Deeds Not Words - available to buy on the evening for £20 (please bring cash).

This event is open to all genders but spaces are limited as the event is also open to all members of The Club at The Ivy. This event is free with no refreshments or food provided but guests are very welcome to buy drinks at the bar.

Theme: Deeds Not Words

Hosted by Jo Wallace, creative director JWT, London and founder of Good Girls Eat Dinner.

Venue: The Club at The Ivy, 1 - 5 West Street, London. WC2H 9NQ

Timings: Arrival, 6.30pm. The conversation, including an open floor discussion, will begin at 7.00pm, running until 7.45pm.  Helen will then sign copies of her book from 7.45pm.

This event is free with no refreshments or food provided but guests are very welcome to buy drinks at the bar.

Please note that GGED is a non-profit event. Please only secure a space if you are sure you can attend.

It's summer, at last ! But with summer comes even more body shaming potential and we’re not going to take it lying down. In a park, or on a beach. Between the courses of a delicious meal at The Coppa Club St. Paul's, we served up four incredible women with much to say on the subject of how women are portrayed and judged in the media. 

Lisa Smosarski the editor in chief at Stylist magazine which celebrates brilliant and empowered women. | Professor Phillippa Diedrichs known internationally for translating high-quality scientific research into innovative strategies and measurable health and social benefits for society, businesses, and government. Her research and consultancy focuses on championing body positivity, appearance diversity, girls, and women. | Assa Ariyoshi an incredible illustrator with a focus on the female form. Assa grew up in Japan before moving to London to study and work. | Nadia Craddock a PhD candidate at the Centre for Appearance Research exploring how big business can foster body confidence. Over the last year, she has spoken with over 40 leaders in fashion, beauty and advertising, using strategic science to identify opportunities, challenges, and levers for change to create more body positive environments.

Theme: Girls Just truly represented



For this special GGED we went back to school. Champagne School. At St Pancras Brasserie and Champagne Bar by Searcys - because what they don’t know about bubbles isn’t worth knowing. An expert sommelier enlightened our palettes (and mind) during a Champagne and English sparkling wine tasting, in the private Glass Room. Followed by a delicious paired menu. Along with fine wines, exquisite dishes and an expert sommelier, we served up two incredible speakers:

Sonia Ben-Santamaria the first Royal Opera House female conductor associated to the Young Artists programme and founder of Glass Ceiling Opera. And Sarah Jane Moon an award-winning artist who specialises in figurative painting exploring identity, gender and sexuality. Sarah Jane teaches and exhibits internationally and recently collaborated with two other artists to create the show Threesome which explored queerness and the female gaze.

Theme: Making Magic
