Re-shaping the future: protecting women's rights

Covid-19 has thrown the gendered division of work into sharp relief and highlighted once again the inequalities women experience and the inter-sectional dimension of these. This conference will be an opportunity to discuss issues of key concern to women at present, such as balancing work and caring responsibilities, workload, casualisation, Black Lives Matter and maternity rights. We will discuss how we can protect women's rights for the future and what action we can take both locally and nationally. There will be a range of speakers as well as opportunities for delegates to raise and discuss other areas of work they are involved in and/or would like to take forward collectively




Nominees to this committee must be in good membership standing, be a Women member, (this being self defined) and be employed with the last 12 months.
