International Women’s Day 2015

WOMEN MAKING THINGS HAPPEN

In the five years that the Coalition Government has been in power, women and families have born the brunt of their so-called ‘austerity’ cuts.

In the run up to what is the most important general election in our lifetime, and to celebrate International Women’s Day 2015, we are gathering together to encourage women to make things happen.

Join us at the People’s History Museum on 8 March 2015 from 2pm – 5pm to enjoy a programme of events:

  • 2pm – 3pm Ending Apartheid in Palestine – Speakers: Sarah Colborne (PSC), Haya Al Farra (Palestinian Mission), Komal Adris (Knowledge and Socialist Thought Institute [KSTI]) and Rena Wood (UNISON North West) Chair: Angie Rayner (Regional Convenor, UNISON North West)
  • 3pm – 3.45pm Soledad – one woman’s experience of the Spanish Civil War, a short play
  • 3.45pm – 4.30pm Keeping Our Girls Safe (KOGS) – workshop
  • 4.30pm – 5pm Why it’s important to vote – panel of female MPs to be confirmed

Throughout the afternoon you will have the chance to have your say on what you want to happen after the general election and to sound off in our ‘Vox Box’.

Please see the flyer below for more information.
