Join us for our first branch meet up of 2020 and find out all about our new campaign and how you can get involved.
Friends and Family very welcome!
WE Barnet are delighted to invite you to join us for a talk with songs from Kim Ismay about her life on stage, screen and TV. Kim is currently appearing as Madame Morrible at the Apollo Victoria in London. She spent a record 7 out of the last 13 years starring as Tanya in MAMMA MIA! in London’s West End. Her solo albums, TORCH & DEBAUCH and ABOUT BILL are available at Dress Circle & on iTunes.
WE Barnet is fundraising to support our campaigns locally and for the Greater London Authority Elections May 2020.
Equality for women isn't just a women's issue. When women fulfil their potential, everyone benefits. Equality means better politics, a more vibrant economy, a workforce that draws on the talents of the whole population and a fairer society.

Help us to make history and elect our first Greater London Assembly member this May!
We need activists to call our members and supporters from across London and ask them to mobilise to support our fantastic team of candidates - led by Professor Sue Black.
You will be calling supporters who, like you, want to shake up politics and make change happen, and who have told us they want to be called by us. By giving your time, you'll be able to make a massive difference to our campaign which promises to make waves in London politics.
Please use the tick boxes below to let us know which shifts you can attend.
About the night:
📢 Briefings start at 6pm sharp and will give you all the information you need about our campaign so far, who you are calling, what to say and how to record your call. If you can't make it until later we would still love your help, but please do let us know!
🍕 Hot drinks and pizza will be provided to keep you going. Please tell us if you have dietary restrictions and will want feeding.
😰 If you have never done a phonebank before, or feel nervous about calling strangers, be reassured that we will provide full training and call scripts, and answer all your questions before you start calling. If you still don't fancy calling we have plenty other ways you can help, such as sending follow-up texts, so please sign up even if you are not completely sure.
🎁 We know you're not in it for the swag, but... each phonebanker who joins us on the night will get a limited edition WE goody bag. Don't miss out!

Join us for our regular Feminist Book Club. This month we are reading Home Fire by Pakastani-British author Kamila Shamsie, which won the Women's Prize for Fiction in 2018.
A contemporary rewriting of Antigone, a tragedy by the Ancient Greek writer Sophocles, it connects the Greek commentary on the failures of nationalism to present-day xenophobia against Muslim immigrants in Britain.
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.
We're excited to return to the Oddfellows bar on New North Road for our first social of 2020!
Our social is for members and supporters to catch-up in a informal setting. No agenda, just a chat over food and drink (including non-alcoholic). The conversations are liable to wander away from politics, as this is about getting to know each other. Drop in for 30 minutes or the whole time.
We've a table booked in the backroom from 6.30pm for food, or join us from 7pm onwards for a drink.
Feel free to bring a friend, or let us know if you'd like to buddy up to arrive with someone else.
If you RSVP below then you'll receive updates and we'll be able to let the venue know final numbers.
The Exeter branch of WEP was founded in the upstairs speakeasy in Oddfellows a few years ago, so we're looking forward to returning. We've picked the downstairs bar though so we have a more accessible spot! Oddfellows is a short walk from Exeter Central station, and a few minutes from the High Street bus stops. There's also parking nearby.
We're kicking off the year with the return of our popular I'm a Feminist But....Pub & Politics night.
Join us from 7.30pm on Thursday 13th February for an evening of fun and conversation over a glass of something refreshing. No expert knowledge or banter needed. Bring your dilemmas and qualms of the feminist or other variety and let's have a giggle as we set the world to rights.
The venue will be in Ipswich central and fully accessible.
If you'd prefer to meet up beforehand, please drop us a message and we'd be happy to arrange this.
