Intersecting Inequalities: BME women and Austerity – report launch

Tuesday 10 October 2017

4–5.30pm 

Committee Room 19, House of Commons, Westminster

 

On the 10th October, the Women’s Budget Group and the Runnymede Trust will be launching brand new research that reveals how government Budgets since 2010 have impacted Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) women. In partnership with Coventry Women’s Voices and RECLAIM in Manchester, we’ve carried out research that brings BME women’s lived experiences to the forefront.

 

The launch will give us new insight into the ways BME have been hit hardest by successive Budgets, and follow with discussion on what must be done reverse the trend.

 

Speakers will include:

·         Dawn Butler MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities

·         Helen Grant MP, Maidstone and The Weald

·         Rt. Hon. David Lammy MP, Tottenham

·         Kacea Omeje, peer researcher, RECLAIM
