Feminist events coming up in March
Following on from a very busy start to 2017, with January’s launch of our Sounds Familiar report and our Sex Discrimination Law Review, March is set to be another hectic month for Fawcett! Lots of feminist events are set to take place around International Women’s Day on March 8th (which coincides with the release of Philip Hammond’s first Spring Budget).
Here’s what we’ve got planned so far:
Sunday 5th March – #March4Women
Fawcett are an official partner of CARE International on their fifth annual #March4Women. This year’s theme will be Refugee Women. Find out more and register as attending on the Eventbrite page.
Tuesday 7th March – Making the Economy Work for Women (invite only)
Fawcett are working with ActionAid on this event which will investigate the relationship between violence against women and girls, and women’s economic empowerment.
Wednesday 8th March – International Women’s Day and Spring Budget
We’ll be looking out for any mention of funding for the NHS and social care.
Friday 10th March – Women and Pensions at the WOW Festival
Learn about gender-based pension inequalities and what you can do to protect yourself, from women against state pension inequality.
