The Women’s Equality Network recently launched a new project to try and capture what it is really like to be a woman in Wales in 2018. WEN want to better understand the challenges you face and discover what you think could be done to overcome these challenges.
WEN are inviting women and girls to come along to a series of workshops where you can tell us about your experiences in a safe and inclusive space; learn more about CEDAW; and, meet other women and organisations who are passionate about equality and promoting women’s rights.
The information you provide in the workshops will form part of a UK report which will be presented to the UN CEDAW Committee in 2019; WEN Wales will also compile a Wales-only report which will be submitted to Welsh Government and available publicly.
This project is part of a wider programme of work which is taking place ahead of the UN CEDAW Committee meeting in February 2019 (tbc), where the Committee will consider the UK Government’s most recent Report on the work its has done to remove obstacles to equality and promoting women’s rights.
WEN are going to Haverfordwest, Bangor and Aberystwyth in the next few weeks and would be delighted to see you there!
This is a very exciting opportunity to let the UN know what it is like to be a woman in Wales and the UK in 2018.
