Women of South Leeds – we need you!

Leeds will be holding its 3rd Women’s Forum on Tuesday (21 November 2017) at Leeds Church Institute from 10:30am-1:30pm.

The forum is open to all women and girls in Leeds and is an exciting opportunity to contribute to two innovative projects that will lead the way for ensuring equality for women in our city – The State of Women’s Health in Leeds Report, and the Women Friendly Leeds concept.

The forum is working in partnership with Public Health Leeds and independent researchers to develop a State of Women’s Health in Leeds Report. You may remember that a similar report was developed for men’s health in 2016, but where was the focus on women? For this reason, the forum has campaigned for a report to focus on women’s health.

If you want to have your say about what the report should focus on, come along to the Forum to help develop the brief for researchers. This is a very important project that could have significant impact on the development, improvement and commissioning of services for women and girls in Leeds.

The forum is also inviting women across Leeds to help to develop a Women Friendly Leeds concept. Working towards making Leeds a safer, healthier and better place for women the initiative will advocate for women to be involved in decision-making processes, and have equal opportunities and access to support and services.

Both of these projects aim to be influential in ensuring gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls in our city.

If you have something to say about being a woman in Leeds this is the perfect place for you to have your voice heard! The event is free and fully accessible.
