Event description

Description

Gender justice movements and campaigns play a key role in advocating for women’s rights and pushing for transformational change around the world.

Join Christian Aid and Engender for a discussion of intersectionality in practice, where we're delighted to welcome Memory Kachambwa Executive Director of FEMNET, the African Women’s Development and Communication Network, Marianna Leite, international human rights lawyer and activist, and Talat Yaqoob, chair of the Women 5050 campaign and member of the First Minister's National Advisory Council on Women and Girls.

This will be your chance to hear from amazing women working for an intersectional feminism, and to join in the discussion with questions and contributions. We'll be recording the event for an episode of 'On the Engender', Scotland's feminist policy podcast (but don't worry, you don't have to be recorded if you don't want to), and are looking forward to what should be a fascinating evening.

Information

Doors will open for registration and a chance for a drink at 7pm with the discussion starting at 7.15 . We expect the talk to last for about an hour, and then there'll be time for more informal chat. Of course it's fine if you need to arrive late or leave early!

The venue has step-free access and we'll be using a hearing loop. If there is anything we can do to make it easier for you to attend, please contact alys.mumford@engender.org.uk and we'll do all we can to help. This event is open to everyone.
