Thanks to the power of modern technology, we can still socialise during a pandemic.
This is the first online version of Haringey pub & politics. If it works, we'll continue doing this every month!
Please RSVP on this page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you want to attend. We'll email you the details for dialling in.
Bring your food, drink, partners, children, animals - or just yourself if you're self-isolating! At the very least, this session will be a way to bring cheer to such bizarre times. At the most, we can find out actions we can carry out locally to support our community.
We're going to try a virtual branch meeting for the first time, using Zoom.
You don't need to sign up with Zoom - just click a link. Please RSVP below, and we'll send you the link to click by email before the meeting.
Join WEP Southwark at The Lordship Pub for a Feminist Pub Quiz on Thursday 2 April. The quiz will be packed full of fun and challenging questions on women’s rights and gender equality so start racking your brain and your favourite feminist books in advance!
How much? It costs £5 per person to take part. Please get your tickets on Eventbrite in advance or bring £5 in cash to pay on the night.
Can I make a team? Yes! Up to 6 per team, just email us the names of the people you are bringing or make a note of names on Eventbrite. If you want to join solo, just sign up individually and we will make sure you are added to a team.
This will be a great opportunity to meet others committed to fighting for gender equality and will help to raise money for WEP Southwark at the upcoming elections. Please pass on to all your feminist friends too - who doesn’t like pints, prizes and showing off their knowledge on women’s rights?
WE hope to see you there!

Feel the need for some escapism? How about hanging out with the goddesses of Ancient Greece?
Leeds Branch of the Women's Equality Party are hosting the next in our series of 'Culture Club' on Thursday 16th April 2020 at 19:30. This is our regular book and film night. Given the current stay at home policy we'll be meeting online via Zoom.
We'll be discussing the book Circe, by Madeline Miller. "A bold and subversive story of the Greek goddess". In Miller's feminist retelling of Homer's classic, the Odyssey, Circe becomes a hero in her own right.

Join us for our regular Feminist Book Club. This month we are reading Girl, Woman Other by Bernadine Evaristo, which won the Booker Prize in 2019.
"Teeming with life and crackling with energy — a love song to modern Britain and black womanhood"
Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters. Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.
It doesn't matter if you've read the whole book, half of it or the first 10 pages, come and join in the conversation. All welcome.
