A heavily contested Presidential election and a fiercely competitive quiz*…

*Just a heads up, only one of these statements is true…

This month was our annual AGM, where we look back on all the fun things we’ve done over the past year, choose our committee and elect a President for the coming year.  There was a bit of admin (financial statement, review of non-existent byelaws etc), the Secretary’s Report (reminiscing about all the things we have learned about – the East London Suffragettes, Afrobeat dance, terrariums and embroidery to name a few), and then on to selecting the committee and President for the next 12 months.  Only two people were nominated for President, and only one wanted to stand so the choice was not difficult… The committee now consists of:

  • Chloe – President
  • Sophie – Secretary
  • Lucinda – Treasurer
  • Siobhan
  • Katherine
  • Rachel
  • Steph

With all the formalities out of the way we headed to the pub for the now traditional ‘Foremost Feminist Pub Quiz’, hosted by our very own Sophie.  With challenging questions about women in history, sport, politics and the ever popular (but as ever, almost impossible) Lady Maths, our teams got their thinking caps on in pursuit of glory and prizes (an excellent assortment of sweets, pencils and badges).  No-one went home empty handed, and a new HWW Pub Quiz Sub-Group has now been formed so we can all get together for quizzes and beer more often!
