Background:

The report for Women’s Hour that identified Islington as the worst for women in the UK has prompted a strong interest and commitment to explore the issues raised - to see where there is or can be a different story for women in Islington. It has brought women leaders in Islington together to plan a year of action to focus energies on ensuring Islington is and can be a great place to be a woman. The aim is to use the 8 March events to launch a year of activity #Islington4Women which will celebrate, champion and work to understand what can make women’s lives better.

The event is being delivered by Islington Council in partnership with the Children and Young People’s Voluntary Sector Forum, Islington Play Association and All Change.
