“Best conference in years”, say members.
Nottingham October 2011
President Sheila Eaton comments “The theme Equality and the Empowerment of Women was so appropriate for this significant year for women, with the centenary of International Women’s Day and the formation of UN Women at the United Nations and now the Commonwealth agree a girl can succeed to the British throne. Conference speakers were inspirational Women of Achievement. Presentations by the Health Committee and the National Council of Young Women engaged delegates. We worked hard, enjoyed delightful entertainment and still had time to meet old and new friends”.
The resolutions, all topical, provided the opportunity for lively debate; the outcome is that strong representations can be made to Government on issues including: child benefit, transport problems, forced marriage and the reform of women’s justice.
