The group discusses the meaning of feminism, its history, the current challenges and opportunities. Can we move towards a workforce that utilises the talents of the whole population - and an egalitarian society, at ease with itself?

The Feminist Group has continued to grow and explore a variety of relevant issues, including the failure of Employers to abide by the 2010 Equality Act (notably equal pay and maternity rights), the increase in the number of rape cases with the worrying diminishing number of prosecutions, and the impact of Covid on women in particular.

We have actively debated and followed the ongoing the high profile debates around biological sex, gender and invasion of female only spaces by trans women.

We have explored connections with other organisations including the Women’s Equality party as it seeks to increase its number of councillors. We were pleased to learn of the WEP ‘s intention to contest seats where MP’s stand accused of sexual harassment, which did result in an element of success, Sadly the Worcester branch, of the WEP, with whom we were in touch, and which was very proactive, has called it a day for the time being. We have regular contact with the Older Feminist Network in London, who produce a regular Newsletter, which raises many points of interest worthy of debate..

You will be very welcome to join us. We can promise some interesting discussions!
