Event: Working Together for Women

Wednesday 10th July 2013, 6.30 - 8pm

Old Sessions House, Farringdon, EC1R 0NA (nearest tube Farringdon)

There are huge challenges facing those of us working in policy and campaigns fighting for women with more than ever to be done and fewer of us working in the field. In spite of these difficulties, there are a number of successes where women’s organisations have worked together, crossing agendas where appropriate and supporting each other in campaigns. Unfortunately there is often little time to focus on how we might do this and how others have achieved goals by working together.
Join bpas for an informal networking event which will provide an opportunity to talk to others looking to work together to effect policy changes to improve women’s lives and hear from speakers who are doing just that.

Speakers include:

Katy Taylor, Aya Project . The Aya Project is a partnership project between Women’s Aid and Imkaan which works to build the resilience of the specialist women’s sector and BMER women’s sector working to end violence against women and girls.

Kat Banyard, UK Feminista. UK Feminista supports individuals and grassroots groups to campaign for gender equality, and are currently working with Object on the ‘Lose the lads’ mags’ campaign.
Wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be provided.

Admission to this event is free and open to all working in and around the women's sector but please book your place in advance with katherine.o’

The hashtag for the event is #togetherforwomen
