Debate – Women and the cuts
Will women be disproportionately affected by the con dem spending review and public spending cuts? The Fawcett society have launched legal action against the government – what is the role for feminists at the grassroots and how can we link with other local campaigns?
Consciousness raising session.
There are limited spaces for this session so please sign up in the morning. This is a self identifying women only session, a chance to share experience and consciousness of a particular topic, to be discussed on the day.
Free session for people to get creative and inspired by things they have discussed during the day. Sarah will demonstrate a few different layouts for book and zine making and show some examples of zines she has made. If you have any books or articles what you wouldn’t mind bringing along for inspiration that would be helpful too.
Creative writing session
We can claim our strength and depth of self-expression through regular creative writing practice. Every woman has a powerful, unique voice and can write. Or if you cannot write, someone else will note down your words for you. This session introduces a practical creative writing technique and involves us all in sharing our ideas.
The future of Feminism in Brighton
An open discussion about future projects and an opportunity to get involved in campaigns – all welcome.
