Join us for a relaxed few hours in Worcester City Centre with other, like-minded people. Our Coffee Mornings are a chance to find out more about WEP and your local branch, ask questions, meet members and supporters and maybe get involved.
Informal fun with coffee and cake.
Each Coffee Morning we will discuss one of the party's six objectives to explore how they relate to you and Worcestershire. In October we will be looking at Equal Representation. Without pro-active change we will be waiting 50 years for truly equal representation in parliament. WE believe that we can create an equal Parliament in just two elections. We'll discuss how WE are plan to do that and discuss how Worcestershire can be a part of it.
We will also discuss a Hot Topic (or two), to be announced on the day.
If you have a burning question or topic you would like to discuss please let us know before or on the day and we'll do our best to cover it at the time or at the next one!
We are full up with volunteers for this phone bank now - thank you very much for considering! I will be in touch with more about conference volunteering very soon, in the meantime, drop me an email if you have any ideas or questions.
What Women What 2.0 Canvassing
The Women’s Equality Hammersmith and Fulham branch is happy to announce the next canvassing event for the ‘What Women Want 2.0’ campaign.
What is the campaign about ?
WE are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ‘What women want 2.0’ survey which first launched in 1996 when The Women’s Communication Centre distributed postcards across the UK, asking women the simple question, ‘What do you want?’.
The answers provided remarkable insights into women’s thoughts, opinions and needs which had a significant impact on gender debate, changed the political landscape and policy agenda, and fed into the equalities legislation. We want to make that change again!
What will we be doing?
We will be asking women around the Hammersmith and Fulham area, ‘what do you want?’ and feeding the answers back to head office in order from them to collate the information and use it to shape the UK next steps post-EU election.
Training will be provided on the day by the canvassing captain. This will entail a discussion of what will happen on the day and a guide of what to say.
The day will also include a post - canvass debrief where we talk about how the day went, and future events.
For this canvassing event WE will be meeting up just outside Fulham Library.
Sophie Walker, Leader of the Women's Equality Party, will be in South East London to meet members and supporters of the Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich branches and talk about What Women Want 2.0.
Relaunched in 2016 by What Women Want 2.0, WE has teamed up with the What Women Want team to lead a high-profile and historic canvassing project – a 'national conversation with women' – which marks the 20th anniversary of the 1996 'What Women Want' survey.
Through the reach of our Party, WE aim to capture what women living in Britain want in 2016; we want to reach at least 10,000 women of all ages, backgrounds ethnicities and identities. The results of the conversation will inform the future policy direction of the Women's Equality Party, the fastest growing political party in the UK.
Join Sophie to hear – and talk - about What Women Want on Sat 29 Oct, 13:00-15:00 at St John's Church (3 minutes from Waterloo station, on the roundabout by the IMAX cinema).
We're hosting an open meeting - that means members and non-members are welcome to attend. Come along and find out more about the Party and what we're doing as the Cardiff/South Wales Branch.
The venue is fully accessible (including for wheelchairs and prams) and has free parking.

Come along to mull over all things political, feminist and/or local.
Does Labour have a women problem? How is misogyny playing out in Clinton's campaign? How does intersectional feminism need to work in our boroughs? Has feminism become all brand and no substance?
Or absolutely anything political, feminist or local that interests you.
