Event description
Speaking up for women's sex-based rights in sport, legislation, policy and political parties

About this event

Public meeting co-hosted by Labour Women’s Declaration and Labour Peer David Triesman during the Labour Party Conference.

Why does sex matter in a sexist society?

Join us for an evening of talks and discussions on women's sex-based rights with Labour politicians and activists. Hear from those campaigning to retain and strengthen women's rights across all sectors on why this is also a vital issue for the Labour Party. Support our freedom to discuss these issues in a respectful atmosphere.

The evening includes a special focus on girls and women’s right to participate in single-sex sport at all levels.

This will be the first opportunity for many Labour members and supporters to hear directly from the Labour Women’s Declaration and from our sister organisation, Lesbian Labour.

Labour Women’s Declaration supports the Labour Party’s manifesto commitment to women’s sex-based rights as set out in the Equality Act 2010. Thousands of members have agreed with us and signed our Declaration:
