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 recent news concerning the increase in the number of rape cases, the worrying diminishing number of prosecutions. and the seeming failure of establishment figures to be brought to justice.
We have explored connections with other organisations, visiting Malvern Pride and The Worcester branch of the Womens’ Equality Party, and the Older Feminist Network in London. 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.
You will be very welcome to join us. We can promise some interesting discussions!
