Lecture 2013

10th January 2013 by Natalie Burns

Back to Lecture 2013

This year’s lecture will be given by influential human rights activist Sister Helen Prejean, a leading advocate for the abolition of the death penalty.

Sister Helen is a renowned inspirational speaker and we are delighted she is giving the Women of the Year 2013 Lecture on Monday 4th February at the Royal Institution of Great Britain.

Journalist and ITV broadcaster Julie Etchingham will chat with Sister Helen before taking questions from the audience.

Since 1984, Sister Helen has divided her time between educating people around the world about justice and the death penalty, and counselling individual death row prisoners in America.   She documented her experience with death row inmate Patrick Sonnier in the bestselling book Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States. The book later became an award-winning film starring Susan Sarandon, an opera and a play for schools and colleges. She has since written The Death of Innocents: An Eyewitness Account of Wrongful Executions.

Place: Royal Institution of Great Britain, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS
Date: Monday 4th February 2013
Time: The lecture starts at 6.30pm and is followed by a drinks reception.  The evening concludes at 9.15pm

All past attendees of the lunch are invited to attend and to bring a guest and, unlike the lunch, men are very welcome to attend.

If you would like to attend please let Event Manager Mary Krauss know, either via email enquiries@womenoftheyear.co.uk or telephone 020 8732 8874, as soon as possible.

The tickets are £25 each and are issued on a strictly ‘first come first served’ basis
