The Portcullis Trust is proud to present the latest in its Richmond Adult Community College lecture series: Sophie Walker of the Women's Equality Party.


Tickets are £12, and can be pre-purchased here (or bought on the door).


Sophie Walker is the leader of the Women’s Equality Party. She was

selected as the first party leader in July 2015 and was profiled in the

Telegraph newspaper at the time with the headline: “This generation’s

Emmeline Pankhurst?”


In January 2016, Sophie was elected to represent the Women’s Equality Party

Sophie worked as an international news agency journalist for nearly twenty

years and is an ambassador for the National Autistic Society, campaigning

for better support and understanding of autism, particularly in women and
