Rachel Cooke - Her Brilliant Career: Ten Extraordinary Women of the Fifties

Tuesday 19th November 2013 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Free Event

The 1950s is an era most associated with prudishness, frugality and old-fashioned values, where a typical week in a woman's life entailed 60-70 hours of housework, and little to no independence. Journalist and critic Rachel Cooke's new book sets out to show a hidden side to the monochrome decade, as she profiles ten extraordinary '50s career women who blazed trails in the fields of film, archaeology, law and motor racing, among others. Tonight Rachel takes us back 60 years to meet these unforgettable women who inspired, influenced and sometimes shocked the decade. She will be in conversation with writer and comedian Viv Groskop.

Venue: the Gallery at Foyles
