Brexit and Women’s Rights – Protecting Equalities Legislation

Labour Party

Women's Conference Saturday leaflet final


  1. Brexit is already damaging the economy. Brexit harms those who can least afford it.
  2. Labour has long tradition of internationalism. Membership of the EU is a vital part of this.
  3. Labour members and voters are overwhelmingly opposed to Brexit. We must be true to members’ and voters’ views.

With the economy worsening as a result of the threat of Brexit, women feel the effects more. I am pleased to be speaking in Brighton at a fringe meeting discussing the impact of Brexit on women with Sam Smethers, Chief Executive of the Fawcett Society, Kate Green MP, Professor Aisha Gill of Roehampton University, Viv Pointon from Labour Against Brexit and Megan Corton Scott from Fabian Women’s Network. We are meeting at 6pm on Saturday 23rd September at Friends Meeting House, Ship Street, Brighton, BN1 1AF. The meeting is open to everybody.
