Lobby Parliament for women’s rights
Join activists and organisations from across the country at a feminist lobby of parliament in London and call on MPs to stop eroding women’s rights and start driving forward women’s equality.
Reproductive rights are under attack, women’s economic independence is being eroded by the cuts and age-old inequalities such as violence against women persist.
Equal rights campaign group UK Feminista is organising a mass lobby of parliament which aims to see constituents meet 100s of MPs and lay out the facts and outline the action needed to tackle violence against women, access to justice and economic equality for women and women’s representation in politics.
UK Feminista will be making a lobby pack for you to download from their website – or pick up on the day – with the calls for action and all the facts and figures that you can use and give to your MP.
From 11:00 – 13:00 there is a rally and training event: it will be at Church House, 27 Great Smith Street, Westminster, London, SW1P 3AZ - NOT, as previously annoucned, at the Abbey Centre, 34 Great Smith Street, London SW1P 3BU.
This will be packed with talks and short films on the issues in question, and there will be a short training session so you can get all the info you need on how to lobby your MP and find out what will happen once you get inside parliament.
Then from 14:00 – 16:00 you lobby your MP at the Houses of Parliament.

You can also email your MP to arrange a meeting through UK Feminista’s website on the ‘sign up’ page.
