bpas and Women’s Resource Centre International Women’s Day event
Women’s sector organisations working to influence policy have had a difficult time recently. The challenges posed by public spending cuts that disproportionately affect women, development of policy that doesn’t accurately reflect women’s needs and attacks on issues like abortion have all caused significant problems. However, there have been notable successes and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service and the Women’s Resource Centre invite all those working in and around the women's sector to a reception to discuss and share your experiences with colleagues.
We will hear from speakers about their achievements in campaigning for the women they represent and how we might learn from each other’s experiences. There will then be an opportunity to informally chat and meet other campaigners from organisations.
Speakers include Ros Bragg from Maternity Action and Hannana Siddiqui from Southall Black Sisters on the ‘Abolish No Recourse to Public Funds Campaign’
