The WEP Leeds Culture Club is a monthly meet up to discuss books, films and TV with like-minded people. After the success of our first Culture Club comes CC#2 where we will be discussing Beloved by Toni Morrison and also the Netflix special Nanette by Hannah Gadsby. £5 to join, all funds go to supporting @wep_leeds. WE would love to see you there!
Really looking forward to catching up as a branch this month to celebrate what's been happening and look at what's coming up.
If you're new to WEP we'd love you to come along and get to know fellow branch members and find out how you can get involved locally.
Friends and family members welcome!
Join us at the Maynard Arms, Crouch End, for our monthly pub & politics. We gather on the first Wednesday of every month from 7 pm at fully accessible Haringey pubs.
We can keep everyone updated on what's happening locally with the Women's Equality Party - but the main thing is to hear from you. We want to know what you're passionate about, what's bothering you locally or nationally, what's interesting in the area... anything else you'd like to tell a group of enthusiastic feminists.
Now is an especially good time to come along as you can find out what we're planning for the 2020 Greater London Assembly elections - and how we're going to be part of getting WEP's first elected seat in office!
A chance for members and supporters to meet up and relax at the end of the week. If you’ve been thinking about becoming more involved with the party, this is a great opportunity to get to know your local branch a bit better. WE look forward to seeing faces old and new.
The Brew Society is an accessible venue.
Join us for our 2019 branch elections, where we will be voting in the following roles:
- branch co-leader
- branch co-data manager
- branch treasurer
- fundraising lead
- events lead
- membership lead
We will also have a speaker on women's mental health issues, and refreshments, after the elections take place.
Come along and use your membership vote!
This is an opportunity to meet the volunteers running and organising events and operating the Branch. We follow an Agenda and discuss the business of the Branch and ideas going forward. It’s a relaxed environment and you are very welcome to attend although we would prefer to know you are coming so that we can provide details of where we will be!
We have monthly Open Branch Meetings in Tunbridge Wells. Everyone is welcome. They are for anyone who is interested in achieving gender equality in our lifetime and wants to help us do that. It is a very informal gathering.
More details of what we'll be discussing will be posted on our facebook page nearer the time.
No previous experience in or knowledge of politics required, just a wish to be involved somehow.
We meet in the first floor room of The Opera House Wetherspoons Pub in Tunbridge Wells. It is actually where the first suffragettes of Tunbridge Wells used to meet!
We meet from 7.30pm in the bar on the ground floor and move to the first floor for the meeting at 8pm.

If you would like to take part in the Swap Shop please bring a donation and you can take home as much or as little as you like, all proceeds will help Korina to stand in the election in May.
This month we are reading Hidden Figures: The Story of the African-American Women Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee-Shetterly.
Set against the backdrop of the Jim Crow South and the civil rights movement, the true story of NASA’s African-American female mathematicians who played a crucial role in America’s space program—and whose contributions were previously unheralded.
Before John Glenn orbited the Earth or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of professionals worked as “Human Computers,” calculating the flight paths that would enable these historic achievements. Among these were a coterie of bright, talented African-American women. Segregated from their white counterparts by Jim Crow laws, these “colored computers,” as they were known, used slide rules, adding machines, and pencil and paper to support America’s fledgling aeronautics industry, and helped write the equations that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.
As ever it doesn't matter if you've read half the book, all of it or just the first 10 pages, all are welcome. Come and join in the conversation.
Come along to our next WE Barnet Open Branch Meeting and get involved in your local branch as we discuss our plans for our branch and the London GLA Elections 2020!
We will then have an informal discussion/chat on a topical subject.
If you are able to join us, please RSVP. If you are unable to attend, it will be great to hear your thoughts and ideas which we can share at the meeting.
We look forward to seeing you.
