Josephine Butler

Join the author of Patron Saint of Prostitutes for an afternoon conversation.

The Victorian feminist Josephine Butler was a campaigner against laws which abused prostitutes, and her work helped countless women and girls affected by trafficking and sexual abuse.

The author of a new book about her, Helen Mathers, will discuss the woman and issues she stood for, with Jana Funke, a historian with a specialist knowledge of sexuality.
