Join our discussion groups


We are organising some discussion groups on 22nd January 2014 to feature in the International Women’s Day Derby Festival 2014 Magazine & Films.

Come along to discuss the issues – it’s an informal and friendly discussion over some nibbles and local students will take some photos, notes of key points and film footage (with your permission), for the magazine and online film clips.

Just let us know if you can come along and join us and which session/s you can take part in from the following:

Wednesday 22nd January 2014:
11.00am: International Flavour

Discussing global gender campaigns, how IWD is marked around the world and the global issues it can highlight.

12.00pm: Across the ages – letters to your younger & older self
Discussing different stages of women’s lives and what you would write in a letter to your younger self and your older self.

2.00pm: Men Supporting IWD
Discussing why IWD is important for everyone, every gender. We are keen to hear from male supporters.

3.00pm: How can we make a difference?
Discussing ideas and experiences on what we can do to make progress on gender issues such as examples of campaigns to support, ways to challenge the status quo and activism for women’s rights.

4.30pm: Generations of women
Discussing how women’s lives, issues and the feminist movement have all changed over time, and appreciating the contribution of different generations and age groups. We would like to attract a wide age range for this intergenerational discussion.
