Empowering Women: Roadmaps to Financial and Social Freedom

21st Century Female Empowerment and Gender Equality 

This is the first of a series of meetings of the 21st Century Female Empowerment and Gender Equality themed group. It will aim to uncover, through discussion and debate, the social and financial barriers, which are preventing Women gaining complete independence to choose how they live their lives.

This will be a split meeting, starting with a speaker, hopefully, and a Q&A. This will then be followed by a general discussion over ideas on how the group can be developed and how it can be organized. We will also look for volunteers to help us develop this group successfully.

More details to follow soon.

This group is being started up and coordinated by Sharn Sunner.

You Will Need To Pay Your Annual Subscription to Attend

Although membership of our site is free we do expect all those who attend our events to pay an annual subscription that covers attendance not just one meeting but also to the vast majority of our meetups and webinars for any one year. It also allows you to bring one guest free to every meeting or webinar.

If you are unable to pay online this way can you please let us know and we will make other arrangements. Also we never refuse membership to anyone who is unable to pay, so do please let us know if there are difficulties this way and you will still be able to join in.

    Sorry for leaving half-way through the meeting.

    This is not everything but please have a look at:
    UK National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security — Question for Short Debate, House of Lords, 24 Feb 2014,

    As I'm working 25hrs a day and 8 days a week on Sri Lanka(the ''war'' is not yet over , in fact it's getting worse) I only wanted to see what you were up to.

    Best wishes

      Hi Anne, there will definitely still be lots of opportunity to get involved with helping to develop this group. There will be a second meeting in April and possibly a planning meeting in March. They will be posted on to this site as soon as we have dates.

    Don't know yet if I can make it to the meeting, but very glad you're setting this up Sharn and wishing you well with it - even though it will mean losing your active support and input from the GN21-Africa group. Hope we can continue to "rub minds" as we learn to develop the groups.

      Thank you for the kind wishes Pam. Let's stay in touch as we develop the groups. I will be very happy to keep up with the progress of the Changes in Africa group too and hopefully attend a meeting now and again, as time permits.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
