#KeepTheGoodStuff – How can we lead a feminist fightback to the impact of Covid-19?

Labour Women’s Network knows lockdown, and the restrictions that have followed, has been challenging for everyone, especially women.

However, for those who have been able to work remotely, some of the new ways of working have reduced barriers to workplace and political participation presented by caring responsibilities, geography, health, disability or finance. LWN believes we should Keep The Good Stuff as the UK rebuilds and recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, some organisations have been quick to ditch elements of progress entirely - we are calling on the Labour Party to;
consider how virtual access to Labour Party meetings and events can be achieved to increase participation in our political processes, call on councils to maintain a level of virtual access to decision making, and
call on employers to take measures to #KeepTheGoodStuff from increased opportunities to work from home, to continue to hold some meetings and events online.

We have a great panel to discuss how #keepthegoodstuff can reduced barriers in the workplace and increase political participation.  Invited guest include;

Marsha De Cordova MP, Shadow Minister Women’s and Equality
Chi Onwurah MP, Shadow Minister for Science, Research & Digital 
Sam Smethers, CEO Fawcett Society
Sian Elliot, TUC Women's Policy Officer
Alexandra Topping, Gender & Equality Senior Reporter, The Guardian
Kate Dearden, Head of Research and Policy, Community Union and LWN Management Committee
