WEP Leeds Branch 'Culture Club'

"Sometimes ideas change the world. This astonishing, miraculous, shattering, inspiring book captures the origins and the arc of the movement for sex equality. It’s a book whose time has come - always, but perhaps now more than ever.”

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 Tuesday 23 March 2021 at 7.30pm online via Zoom.

Our book of the evening is Butterfly Politics by Catharine A. MacKinnon.

"Butterfly Politics shows how Catharine A. MacKinnon turned discrimination law into an effective tool against sexual abuse―grounding and predicting the worldwide #MeToo movement―and proposes concrete steps that could have further butterfly effects on women’s rights."

"MacKinnon adapts a concept from chaos theory in which the tiny motion of a butterfly’s wings can trigger a tornado half a world away. Under the right conditions, she posits, small actions can produce major social transformations."

We will also be discussing the film Bridesmaids (available on Netflix).

If you would like to read ahead, April's book is The Testaments by Margaret Atwood.

You are welcome to join us, whether or not you have read the book or watched the film.

Barnet Culture Club Emil!a Q&A with Musical Director

We are teaming up with WEP's Disability Caucus for an adventure in two parts...

 

1609. I AM EMILIA.
WRITER. WIFE. LOVER. MOTHER. MUSE.


400 years ago Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Could she have been the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What of her own poems? Why was her story erased from history?
Emilia and her sisters reach out to us across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song. Listen to them. Let them inspire and unite us.
Celebrate women’s voices through the story of this trailblazing, forgotten woman.
Stand up and be counted.

 

Please note that the production contains strong language and covers the subject of infant mortality.

 

Part One

Sign up to watch the play Emil!a online in your own time, at anytime during March, the show runs for 2 hours and 20 minutes. 

Recordings are available for a video with captioning or the video with embedded audio description commentary.

Tickets are available on a Pay What You Can basis here.

 

Part Two on Wednesday 24th March at 7.30pm

Musical Director of Emil!a, Yshani Perinpanayagam will be answering your questions about the show Emil!a and her career.

 

Please RSVP to get the zoom meeting details.

WEP Edinburgh and the Lothians 'Book Club' - 25th March 2021

How does struggle, love, joy and imagination along with the intersectionality of feminism combine into one book. 

Come along to WEP Edinburgh and the Lothians 'Book Club' on Thursday 25th March 2021 at 19:30 on Zoom where we will be discussing Bernardine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other beautifully combines these themes as she follows 12 characters in this Booker Prize winning novel. 

Black women’s stories have long been misread as something they are not. It is hard to write fiction without being asked: is this story about you? And does this singular tale represent the collective black female experience? Bernardine Evaristo’s Girl, Woman, Other turns a subtle side-eye to both questions, and makes answering them an impossible task.

Detailing the lives, most of them black British women, moving through the world in different decades and learning how to be. Each character has a chapter; within the chapters their lives overlap, but their experiences, backgrounds and choices could not be more different. There’s Amma, a lesbian socialist playwright, and non-binary Morgan, who uses the internet to navigate their gender identity – but also Shirley, a teacher who feels alien in Amma’s community, and Winsome, a bride who has arrived from Barbados to an unhappy marriage. Many of the characters are close – friends, relatives or lovers – while others simply visit the same theatre on the same night, or argue with each other on Twitter.

Living within a patriarchal society presents challenges that unite many of us. Amma is concerned with what it means to be politically pure, or to “sell out”, while another character, Carole, chases mainstream success in the world of banking. Other questions raised in the novel feel urgent yet timeless: how can a woman incorporate a relationship with a man into her feminist life? Should we show anger towards those who “get it wrong” – even if from a position of ignorance? Whose guidance should I follow? That dispensed by my mother, my university, my partner, my peers, my feminist heroes? Which bonds will last?


You are welcome to join us whether or not you have had time to read the book...

LMB Phonebank GLA 3

The London elections are a key campaign for the Women's Equality Party and we're fighting to win an important seat on the London Assembly - the elected body which holds the Mayor of London to account - as well as running for Mayor ourselves. Our voice and our message have never been more crucial: as we begin to recover from COVID and from Brexit we must ensure that we Build Back Equal. COVID was the great revealer of inequality in our society and it is vital that women and minoritised groups are not forgotten in the recovery period.

At this phonebank you will be calling voters to persuade them to vote for us. By giving your time, you'll be able to make a massive difference to our campaign by canvassing voters and asking volunteers like you to sign up to get involved in the campaign. 

Things you need to know: 

☕ Make sure you have tea and snacks on hand as calling is thirsty work!

📱 Bring your phone - only if you have enough minutes and are happy to do so. We’ll help you turn caller ID off so your number won’t be shared. If you have any questions about this please get in touch on the email below.

😰 If you have never done a phonebank before, or feel nervous about calling strangers, be reassured that we will provide full training at the start and call scripts, and answer all your questions before you start calling.

💻 You'll need your computer/device so we can connect to each other on zoom for the training and to get support as we go along. Staff and senior volunteers will be there to help and support.

🎉 There's a lot to celebrate! Fundraising and voter targets, best calls and most successful - although we can't all get together this will be a social event where you can connect with other volunteers.
