'Unfinished Business? The women’s sector speaks out

4.30pm | £7

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights movement, and the 100th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, which some women over the age of 30 to vote for the first time. Establishing equal rights between women and men is an ongoing issue, and continuing inequalities have been the focus of many challenging current affairs including the #metoo movement, Times Up campaign, and the rising statistics of gendered crimes such as domestic homicide. The panel discussing these issues will include Kelly Andrews, Chief Executive of Belfast & Lisburn Women’s Aid; Kellie Turtle, Women’s Resource and Development Agency, and Betty Carlisle, Shankill Women’s Centre.
