Join LWN at a special conference to plan campaigns to tackle sexism in politics. Leading politicians and women across our party will come together to discuss the next steps in our fight for equality and look at the past for lessons.

Expect lots of action planning and practical tips for campaigns you can run locally, so please come equipped with pen and paper.

As LWN is a voluntary group funded mainly by our members and supporters, we would like to ask if each delegate would consider a voluntary donation of £5 to help cover costs.  This can be paid on the door or via our donate page here.

We will also be holding a second conference in Birmingham on Saturday, 24th February to widen the discussion.  You can register your interest here

The LWN Conference is open to all women members of the Labour Party only (closed to the media), once you have registered for the event, you will need to bring either your Labour Party membership card or other material to show you are a current Party member and the confirmation email.

Doors Open and Registration will begin from 10.30am, with the first session starting promptly at 11am.

There will be a short break around 12.30 for lunch.  Delegates will provide their own lunch which can be eaten in the venue but tea/ coffee and juice will be available for a small charge.

The event will end around 4pm.
