Women’s rights hustings at the CII

The Women’s Budget Group held a general election hustings on women’s rights at the CII in May. The evening was aimed at discussing the general election and highlighting various parties’ pledges.

These included supporting women’s rights post-Brexit, tackling the gender pay gap, addressing misogyny and gender-based violence and ensuring women
are not hardest hit by future spending cuts.

This event was hosted alongside The Fawcett Society, Maternity Action, Girlguiding UK, The Young Women’s Trust, Rape Crisis and Rosa, and was opened by CII CEO Sian Fisher. The panel on the night included chair Darshna Soni, home affairs correspondent, Channel 4 News; baroness Shami Chakrabarti, Labour Party shadow attorney general; and baroness Charotte Vere of the Conservative Party.

The event was also live tweeted and live streamed via Facebook on the night.
