Women on the front line. Fight Sexism – Fight the Cuts

Thursday 11th December at 7.30pm 
at the Avenue Campus, Highfield Road SO17 1BJ
Speaker: Jean Thorpe

Southampton Reclaim the Night march, November 29, 2014
The economic crisis is highlighting more than ever the inequalities in society. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer. And its exposed other divisions too.Women have come a long way – we’ve won the right to vote, some abortion and contraception rights, the legal right to equal pay and to an extent sexist attitudes have got better. But like the 15% pay gap shows, there’s a big difference between a law being changed and women having real equality.

And the Con-Dem government’s brutal austerity is making things much worse. 750,000 public sector workers are losing their jobs – the majority are women. We’ve seen tuition fees tripled, EMA taken away and child care facilities at many universities closed. 
Welfare benefits are being massacred – leaving many single mothers unsure of how to keep a roof over their families’ head and many women in violent relationships even less confident they can leave.

We demand change! We want a socialist world where society’s huge wealth and resources are collectively owned, based on co-operation not exploitation and genuine democracy. 
We want a society where women are not financially dependant on men, but everyone has a decent income in their own right.
Come along to the meeting to find out more, all are welcome

To all #TUSC supporters Best Wishes for 2022 - let’s see if together we can find hundreds of trades unionists, community campaigners and socialists to challenge austerity at the May local elections in the biggest and widest possible socialist unity.
