Gender equality, the referendum and beyond: Constitutional Cafe

Close the Gap are joining forces with our friends at Engender to host a discussion event on women and the referendum. This ‘constitutional café’ will be held at the Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow, on 30 August from 10.30-12.30.

Aimed at undecided women and men with an interest in gender equality issues, this event will bring people together to talk about the implications for women's rights and gender issues post-September 18th. Discussions will be shaped by participants, and focussed around the questions:

  • What do we need and want to see as the dust settles?
  • How can the women's movement best take action under either outcome?

Close the Gap will be hosting discussions that focus on the theme of women and work, and you’ll be able to pick up a copy of our new paper on constitutional futures and women and work.

There will also be a chance to chat informally to activists from Better Together and Women for Independence, on gender, equality, women's rights and social justice issues, over a cup of tea.

We hope this event will provide an open space for wide-ranging conversation around issues of gender, rights and equality. Anyone with an interest in gender equality is welcome, and you can register for the event here.

We hope to see you there.
