Anyone who would like to:

  • Know more about standing as a candidate
  • Be involved in WE local election campaigns as a canvasser
  • Be a strategist or work as vital back office support

If you have experience to share from previous elections that would be great too. All welcome!

South Wales Winter Social

We had a very busy year in 2017 with both the Council and General Elections - that’s now 3 elections in 2 years, no mean feat for a small group of volunteers and the only branch in Wales!
 
To see out 2017 we’re having a winter social next Tuesday, 12 December. We’re meeting at the Golden Cross in Cardiff City Centre from 6:30pm. We’d love to see you there for our final catch-up of the year - just look out for the WE logo on our T-shirts. Email wepsouthwales@gmail.com if you want to arrange to meet up somewhere beforehand to arrive at the venue in a group, or if you plan to arrive later in the evening.
 
If you’ve never been to one of our meetings or events, this social a great way to meet informally for a chat, get to know some new people, and find out a bit more about what the Branch actually does.
 
At the social we will have the small business of voting in our new Branch Team for 2018. The nominations for the Appointed Branch Officer positions are as follows:
Branch Leader - Sarah Rees
Treasurer - Sally Smith
Communications Lead - Kate Ellis
Data Manager - Ruth Williams
 
Some information about each of the nominees can be read here. We’re looking for more volunteers to take on other roles such as Deputy Branch Leader, Secretary, Comms Support etc. so if you’d like to know more about those or would like to volunteer, please get in touch.
 
We look forward to seeing you next week, and if not, in 2018. Thank you for all your support in 2017.
 
Happy holidays!

There will be food and drink and engaging activities that will help you meet others. We will play 'Who Am I' with the names of amazing and famous women and we will host a feminist book raffle. 

If you have never made it to one of our meetings, this is the one to come to! You will meet like-minded people while supporting your local branch of the Women's Equality Party. 

Tickets are £10 per person. You will get plenty to eat and a glass of wine as well as a ticket to our equality book raffle. There will be vegan options and soft drinks. Partygoers can get additional drinks from the bar downstairs. 

Children are welcome.

White Hart Hotel in Lewes, United Kingdom

Lewes branch meeting

Our next meeting will be held at 7.30pm on Tuesday 12th December at the White Hart in Lewes.  If you can't make it for 7.30, but could get there slightly later, please come, you'll still be most welcome.  
 
At our first meeting, it was agreed that we would begin with a focus on Equal Pay - inspired by the Unlock The Gate campaign, and the recent report by the Fawcett Society that at the current rate of progress, it will take 100 years to close the gender pay gap.  This will also tie in with the theme of 2018 International Women's Day which is the gender pay gap.
 
We also started to look towards next year, as it is the centenary of the Representation of the People Act. There will be plenty to celebrate but also a great platform to raise questions about inequalities that remain in our country.
 
WE look forward to seeing you at the next meeting - please bring your ideas for how WE can grow and grow in Lewes.
