Not enough female voices are being heard during the EU referendum campaign, so here is your opportunity to gain insightful viewpoints from female leaders about the reasons the EU is good for women.
This event is about a positive vision of the EU exploring how beneficial it has been for women and how it can continue to be so.
Most people don't believe the EU is perfect, but to come out, as Remain supporters believe, would not only negatively affect us, but girls in 20, 50 and 100 years time. By coming out, are we are hindering their already precarious futures too?
Join us as we delve deep into the arguments for why a vote for Remain is a vote for the next generations of women's rights.
