The Fawcett Society’s What About Women? campaign is designed to push gender equality onto the political parties’ agendas in the run-up to the election. Fawcett have asked the parties a series of questions on women and the economy, work and family life, crime and justice, democracy and political reform, attitudes and media culture, and equality and human rights. The responses will be published on their website. At present you can hear from the Greens and the Scottish National Party.
You can support the campaign in a number of ways and sign up to receive the weekly campaign bulletin with updates, events and weekly actions you can take. The activist pack tells you how you can organise What About Women? hustings in your local area.
Sheffield Fems are hosting a hustings next Tuesday, 23 March, at the Quaker Meeting House, 7.15pm – 10pm, with Labour, Conservative, Lib Dem and Green candidates. Let us know if you’re hosting one and we’ll add it to our events page.
