An Officer of WE Cheshire East branch has taken part in crowd research with End Sexism in Schools investigating the gender balance of the teaching of English at Key Stage 3.
She will talk about why she became involved and explain the provisional results of the project. There will also be details about the next project to research the teaching of History and how you can get involved. There will be an opportunity for questions and everyone who wants to attend is welcome, not just Women's Equality Party members.

The Edinburgh and Lothians Branch of the Women's Equality Party invite you to join us for our next 'Book Club' on Thursday 27th January 2022 at 19:30 via Zoom. The book that we will be studying is Pregnant Then Screwed by Joeli Brearley.
Imagine suddenly being sacked from your job. After spending years building your career, it's all taken away in just one moment. Why? Because you told your boss you are pregnant.
This happened to Joeli Brearley. And she quickly realised she wasn't alone. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, 54,000 women a year were forced out of their job because they dared to procreate and three quarters of working mothers faced workplace discrimination. Since March 2020 we have seen a generational roll back in maternal employment that will take us decades to repair.
Pregnant Then Screwed is an expose of the unscrupulous work practices and antiquated systems that we've been conditioned to accept and a toolkit for how to challenge them. It's full of practical advice to help you navigate systemic barriers when they slap you in the face.
Whether you're a mother who is sick of being sidelined, undermined, and underpaid. A stay at home mother who wants to work but can't afford to. A future parent who is scared that having children will affect your career. An employer who wants to get the best out of its parent employees, or you simply want a stronger, fairer economy, Pregnant Then Screwed is a compelling manifesto for change and a call to arms for all women.
Please complete the below form for the Zoom Link.
You are welcome whether you have had time to read the book or not!

Leeds Branch of the Women's Equality Party will be holding the next in our series of 'Culture Club', our regular book and film discussion group, on Monday 7th February 2022 at 7.30pm online via Zoom.
This month WE are reading 'The Descent of Man' by Grayson Perry
'I hope that in picking up this book you have already acknowledged that masculinity needs to be questioned, that gender inequality is a huge issue for all of us and that the world would be a better place without it. What I hope this small book might do is bring awareness of masculinity to more people – awareness being a step towards change… to change the whole world for the better.' - Grayson Perry
We are also watching the film Pride, inspired by the extraordinary true story of a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984.
Come along to ‘Culture Club’ if you have read the book, watched the film or just want to have a chat. WE would love to see you there!
If you would like to read ahead, March's book is ‘Herland’ by Charlotte Perkins Hillman.
