The event will be held at the Innovation Centre, University of Exeter on Friday June 6th from 10am till 3pm. Confirmed speakers include: Finn MacKay, Feminist Researcher, Centre for Gender and Violence Research, Bristol University;Harriet Bradley, Professor of Women’s Employment, University of the West of England; Sarah Payne, Author of Health in Women and Men, Senior Lecturer in Social Policy, Bristol University; andJoanne Kaye, Regional Secretary, UNISON.
Brenda adds “There will be workshops and opportunities for input from delegates, both to support the content of the manifesto and for discussion on how to use it to achieve real change for women. Lunch will be provided. Attendance is free, fee for non-attendance is £10. Donations towards refreshments and Fair Play SW gratefully received on the day!”
