Don’t turn back time on women’s equality – join us in Coventry on 19 November

Join us in Coventry as we highlight the impact of the cuts on women and support the Fawcett Society’s campaign  – Don’t turn back time on women’s equality.

Fawcett is highlighting the widening gap between women and men as a result of spending cuts:
-Female unemployment is rising as jobs are cut in public service
-The benefits and services women rely on more are being slashed
-Women on low incomes are becoming poorer
-The pay gap looks set to widen
-Women’s access to vital support services is being undermined
-Increasing numbers of women are being forced to give up work as cuts to childcare support means their jobs no longer cover the family’s care costs

Coventry Women’s Voices highlighted how these cuts will increase inequality between women and men in Coventry earlier this year.

On the morning of 19th November we will be holding a stall to highlight the impact of the cuts on women’s equality. (and giving away free cake!) The stall will be outside Sainsburys in the city centre. We are meeting at 9.30 am in the cafe at the Transport Museum
