Our panel will discuss Fawcett and partner’s data on Black and Asian women and women from ethnic minority backgrounds, disabled women and single parents. We will explore why women’s experiences have been overlooked by decision-makers and how those in power could better understand, reflect and prioritise care and mental health when responding to the current crisis.
Date: Wednesday 9 September
Time: 18:45 - 20:00
Venue: Your home, via Zoom (you will receive the link once you book)
Accessibility: Live captioned
