The Fawcett Society is the UK’s leading charity that campaigns for women’s rights, legal reform and gender equality.
Projects that Fawcett are launching and supporting in 2018 include closing the gender pay gap, defending women’s rights post-Brexit and a comprehensive Sex Discrimination Law Review. Check out their website for the numerous campaigns that the organisation is involved with.
The Society has many local groups, one of which is coordinated in East London with the group meeting near Liverpool Street. East London Fawcett is hosting a fundraising quiz on 23rd August 2018 with proceeds going to the group. AWS London is delighted to be sponsoring the first prize for the event and tickets can be purchased here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/fawcett-east-london-summer-fundraising-quiz-tickets-47212791731. Even though there are to be teams of 6 this can be arranged on the night so feel free to purchase tickets individually.
Members of the Committee will be in attendance and it would be great to see some of our other members there.
