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.
