For many members the monthly meeting represented what WiP was primarily about: the opportunity to network, learn more about the industry and make friends.
Topics ranged from the Net Book Agreement, and Trade Unions and Women’s Rights, to Women and Erotica. Speakers were all women, specialists in their fields, willing to share their expertise with other women. Special meetings were packed out for star speakers such as Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan.
