Introduction by Guardian columnist, writer and journalist Polly Toynbee.
Brighton & Hove Women Against the Cuts (BHWAC) is a group of local women who have come together to take action against the coalition cuts. According to the Gender Audit of the Budget, women will bear the brunt of the austerity measures by nearly two thirds (Source: 2010, House of Commons Library). Cuts to women’s jobs, benefits and support services are reversing equality.
A self-financing group, BHWAC urgently need funds to continue their work.
BHWAC’s Vocal Opposition! promises to uplift and entertain you. Be prepared to laugh, cry and stomp your feet against injustice.
Friday 30th March, 7.30pm (doors open at 6.45pm).
Tickets: £10, £6 concessions and under 16s
