Slay the Patriarchy, CLP by CLP!

Grassroots Labour Party culture doesn’t work for women. From patronising comments to antisocial meeting times to poor gender balance, some local parties have a long way to go. LWN is writing a CLP Women’s Empowerment Charter, and we need your help. What are the issues you’d like to see fixed? What are the experiences that knocked you, and those that lifted you? What commitments could your CLP make to improve gender quality? What tools do you need to push them to do it?

Join LWN for an hour of practical, change-focused discussion on how to slay the patriarchy in your local CLP.
