In this Webinar, three Green Party members will speak about their own lives. They will address why the protection of single sex spaces for women is important to them; how the eradication of women’s sex-based rights has affected them and their communities and, above all, why the Green Party needs to urgently make the changes necessary to allow for open and respectful debate amongst its membership. Followed by Q&A. In a General Election year, it is vital that Green Party policies and practice address the needs and rights of women. Please join us to find out more about our views. All welcome!

Shabanah Fazal: “I am an ordinary Green Party member, retired secondary teacher, mother and grandmother. I voted for decades for Labour but became disillusioned with them over the Iraq war. I joined the Green Party for their core environmental purpose; pro-European stance and also because at that time, unlike Labour, a couple of prominent Greens were willing to stand publicly for sex-based rights and respectful debate.”
Lucy Watson: “Former committee member of Green Party Women and Green Party Disability Group. Currently suspended for expressing my opinions, on the Party’s closed internal women’s forum, about Gender Identity Theory being made into law and public policy”
Annie: “I joined the Green Party because I believe that climate change is the most important issue of our time. But the Green Party also needs to help create a fairer society for all, and that ‘all’ should include women.”
Chair: Cllr Zoe Hatch, Green Party Women Co-Chair
