Fawcett Tyneside was newly established in July 2018. We aim to raise awareness about and campaign on such issues as period poverty, sexual harassment, workplace equality, violence against women and girls, equal opportunities for girls in school, gender stereotypes and more! The group presents an exciting opportunity for local women to come together and campaign for changes in policy, behaviour and communities that will be better for us all. And of course we hope to have some fun along the way!

All are welcome to join the group, and you don’t have to be a Fawcett Society member to get involved. You can contact Group Lead Jenny Hicken via email, or find us on social media:
