Hackney GLA Debrief May 15th

Join us on May the 15th from the comfort of your own home to give feedback from the GLA elections.

We managed 2.15% overall in London, in the North East we achieved 3.6% - lets meet while the process is fresh in our minds about what went well, what didn't and what we need to focus on to ensure women's voices are heard and more of us are elected to positions of political power to be more impactful in our fight for gender equality

WEP Leeds Branch 'Culture Club'

'Every voice raised against racism chips away at its power. We can't afford to stay silent. This book is an attempt to speak'

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 Wednesday 19 May 2021 at 7.30pm online via Zoom. 

'The book that sparked a national conversation. Exploring everything from eradicated black history to the inextricable link between class and race, Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge is the essential handbook for anyone who wants to understand race relations in Britain today.'

We will also be discussing the film Mary Queen of Scots, available on Netflix.

If you would like to read ahead, June's book will be 'I carried a watermelon' by Katy Brand.

Zoom Meeting in York, United Kingdom

York Branch Meeting May 20th

Join us on May the 20th from the comfort of your own home to discuss women's voices in elections.

It is over 100 years since the first women were able to vote and yet women's voices are still frequently unheard or drowned out at election time.  

Currently 34% of MPs are women which, although an all time high, is still woefully short of the 50% it should be.  Women are under represented at every level of governance in society from local councils upwards.

We will be discussing the recent elections and how society needs to change so that more women's voices are heard and more women are elected to positions of political power.  

Email [email protected] to be added to the zoom link.   Bring a drink and let's get talking.

WE Edinburgh and The Lothians 'Book Club' - May 2021

WE Edinburgh and The Lothians Branch invite you to our next 'Book Club' on Thursday 27th May at 19:30 via Zoom, and we have decided to give you the choice of two books. 

  • The first book is: Scabby Queen by Kirstin Innes

Three days before her fifty-first birthday, Clio Campbell - one-hit-wonder, political activist, life-long-love and one-night-stand - kills herself in her friend Ruth's spare bedroom. And, as practical as she is, Ruth doesn't know what to do. Or how to feel. Because knowing and loving Clio Campbell was never straightforward.

To Neil, she was his great unrequited love. He'd known it since their days on picket lines as teenagers. Now she's a sentence in his email inbox: Remember me well.

The media had loved her as a sexy young starlet, but laughed her off as a ranting spinster as she aged. But with news of her suicide, Clio Campbell is transformed into a posthumous heroine for politically chaotic times.

Stretching over five decades, taking in the miners' strikes to Brexit and beyond; hopping between a tiny Scottish island, a Brixton anarchist squat, the bloody Genoa G8 protests, the poll tax riots and Top of the Pops, Scabby Queen is a portrait of a woman who refuses to compromise, told by her friends and lovers, enemies and fans.

As word spreads of what Clio has done, half a century of memories, of pain and of joy are wrenched to the surface. Those who loved her, those who hated her, and those that felt both ways at once, are forced to ask one question: Who was Clio Campbell?

 

  • The second book is: Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner 

Laura "Lolly" Willowes is a twentysomething middle-class Englishwoman who, on the death of her father, at first becomes a conventional maiden aunt living with her brother in London. Then, "groping after something", she makes a bid for personal freedom, an escape to Great Mop, "a secluded hamlet in the heart of the Chilterns", where she finds herself happily becoming a witch in communion with the devil.

In the 1920s, the search for a life (or room) of one's own was a topical theme. The war had liberated millions of women (Townsend Warner had worked in a munitions factory) and wiped out a generation of young men. The role and responsibilities of widows and spinsters was a subject taken up by many writers, from Vera Brittain to DH Lawrence. Lolly addresses it when, having embraced her witchy self, she has a long conversation with a middle-aged country gent who turns out to be Satan. "The one thing all women hate," she tells him, "is to be thought dull."
Sylvia Townsend Warner's whimsical take on postwar womanhood and the quest for meaning, subtitled "The Loving Huntsman", has a sharp edge, a satirical eye and a covert, untamed, eroticism. Townsend Warner was an unconventional lesbian. For her, inter-war women's potential was what mattered most. Women, says Lolly to the devil, "know they are dynamite" and simply long for "the concussion that may justify them".

 

You are welcome to join us whether you have read one book, both books or not had chance to read either of them!

York Branch Book Club A Kind of Spark by Elle McNicoll

Join us to discuss the amazing new book by Ellie McNicoll.  

Elle's website describes the book - A KIND OF SPARK tells the story of 11-year-old Addie as she campaigns for a memorial in memory of the witch trials that took place in her Scottish hometown. Addie knows there’s more to the story of these ‘witches’, just like there is more to hers. Can Addie challenge how the people in her town see her, and her autism, and make her voice heard? A story about friendship, courage and self-belief. 

The book has won numerous awards including Blackwell's Children's Book of the Year,  Blue Peter fiction Book of the Year and was nominated for a Carnegie medal.

We look forward to sharing our thoughts about the book and generally having an open and friendly discussion about the issues raised.
