The Impact Of Poverty On Women

Glasgow Women’s Voluntary Sector Network Open Space event

Wednesday 14th March 2018
Venue: The Teacher Building, St Enoch Square, Glasgow G1
Time: 10am to 4pm

 ‘Poverty has a woman’s face’ : The World Bank

Research shows us that poverty overwhelmingly affects women and children. Even the World Bank acknowledges this.

It’s 2018 and more austerity, changes and cuts to benefits, unequal pay scales, pension cuts and increased cost of living are to be expected with the increasing fear that current political climates may see further impacts on Womens Wealth and Health therefor having a major impact on their self-esteem, personal development and their physical, emotional and social health.

This day will address some of these issues by bringing women together in a safe space allowing time for discussion and identifying what we feel are priority issues for women in Glasgow. The report and comments gathered will be confidentially fed back to Glasgow City Council and relevant Scottish Government Ministers for their information, consideration, and comment.

What is Open Space?   Open Space way of working was created in 1985 and brings people together to discuss a common theme. Open Space is fully participative, there are no talking heads, and believes that the participants are the real experts.  Just come along with an open mind and your thoughts and opinions.

You must register for this event so please complete the attached Registration Form for The Impact Of Poverty On Women event for The Impact Of Poverty On Women event and return to Wise Women 120 Sydney Street Glasgow G31 1JF or contact us on  0141 370 0739 or Info@wisewomen.org.uk
