WEP Haringey Online Pub & Politics!

Thanks to the power of modern technology, we can still socialise during a pandemic. 

This month, our very own Tam O'Neill will be giving a presentation on the work she's been doing with Care International on gender equality. 

Please RSVP on this page, or email julzenthefirst@gmail.com, 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.

Policy Picnic - Women’s representation in governments and the media

Join Harini Iyengar, Pamela Ritchie (Equal Representation), Emma Ko, Rozina Ahmed (Equality in the Media), Ruth Wilkinson and Suzi Martin (Equality in Scotland) for our second policy picnic.

We will be discussing women’s representation in governments and in the media, how they have shaped the narratives around the pandemic and governments’ responses to it, and we'll look ahead to what would be prioritised by a truly representative government in the pathway out of the crisis. 

RSVP today to be a part of the policy picnic, 1:30pm to 2:30pm on Thursday 4th June!

What is a policy picnic?

Covid-19 is shining a light on the inequalities that left vital services underprepared and which exposed poorly paid health and care workers, mainly women and disproportionately BAME women, to this deadly virus. The measures introduced to contain the spread of the virus have exposed how fragile work is, and how flawed our welfare system is. Women in precarious work have watched their income fall away and turned to a benefit system designed to penalise instead of support people at their most vulnerable. Women are bearing the brunt of this pandemic in so many ways. Our mission has never been more urgent.   

As we begin to look to the future WE are holding a series of policy picnics to talk to our members about your experiences of the crisis and to hear your ideas for building back better.

☕ Bring your lunch or a snack and a cuppa to talk to your policy representatives and fellow members in an informal discussion that we hope will lay the foundations for our future policies and campaigns.

*This is event is for members only, if you would like to attend but you aren't yet a member why not join today?

Leeds Culture Club

Want to discover how law discriminates against women? Why is there so much Misjustice

Leeds Branch of the Women's Equality Party invite you to a discussion about the law in the next in our series of 'Culture Club' - our regular book and film night. We'll be hosting this on Thursday 4th June 2020 at 20:10 (after the 'Clap for Carers'). Given the current restrictions on meeting up this will be hosted online via Zoom

In her book, Misjustice: How British Law Is Failing Women, Baroness Helena Kennedy, QC, distinguished lawyer and broadcaster, leads readers through the way that law discriminates against women. When at least two women a week (and rising) are killed by a spouse or partner, one women is raped every seven minutes and the police receive one phone call per minute about domestic violence, yet the courts just seem to stand by and not prosecute perpetrators, what must change at the heart of society to make it just for women?

You are welcome to join us, whether or not you have read the book! Use this link to join the Zoom Meeting. The meeting ID is: 930-0714-3063

We look forward to seeing you then.
