Banning the Bomb, Smashing the Patriarchy: An Evening with Ray Acheson.
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm.

Join Scottish CND and fellow Scottish ICAN partners for an evening with Ray Acheson and a preview of her brilliant new book ‘Banning the Bomb, Smashing the Patriarchy’, which is out soon.

On 22 January 2021, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons came into force. In the words of ICAN’s first staff member, Felicity Ruby, in her book “Acheson tells the story of seven decades of activism transforming an impossible dream into international law”.

The book offers a look inside the antinuclear movement and the recent successful campaign to ban the bomb – from scrappy organising to winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 and achieving a landmark UN treaty banning nuclear weapons.
