HOUSE MEETING - Gender Equality: Why We Must Achieve It

This house meeting will be led by Robin Chandler. She has been an active supporter of GlobalNet21 for some years and lives in the USA. She will be visiting the UK in December and has offered to facilitate a house meeting.

Robin believes that achieving global prosperity will only happen if there is gender equality at every level of society, including the civil sector. But more than this Robin believes that gender equality should be an organising principle at every level of society if the quality of life is to be improved for us all.

Robin has studied and taught about how gender inequality functions in many societies and across time and how this provides key insights into current shifts and activism in power relations and how women and men might collaborate toward a lasting peace.

Will the legal muscle of rule of law, restorative justice, and the punishment of crimes against humanity-local to global- create those changes, or will grass roots civil society assume a new kind of collaborative leadership to transform human culture?

Using her 4R’s Framework (Rights, Roles, responsibilities, Relationships), Dr. Robin Chandler will facilitate a group discussion on why and how gender (in) equality remains the challenge of the 21st Century.

This is a house meeting and the address will be sent out to those wishing to attend closer to the time.

Although membership of our site is free we do expect all those who attend our events to pay a subscription of £10 for a whole year that covers attendance not just to 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.

    I'm really sorry I missed it. Couldn't make it at the last minute.

    The facilitator intervened too often with lengthy inputs when we were doing the exercise.

    I'm really sorry to have missed this, I was looking forward to it! I nearly made it but had to change my plans to look after my step son. I hope I can read up about it soon!

    an update on events in norway which is legalising gender equality in the board room would be useful.

      Useful. identifies that "Norway, not a member of the European Union, imposed a 40 per cent quota for non-executive boardrooms in 2003, a target that was reached in 2009. Norwegian companies can be liquidated if they fail to reach the target". Read previously that the companies in Norway with gender balance were critically monitored too and found to be ....wait for it.......unsurprising to most .... a success. A lot of media talk in the UK on legalising brain damaging drugs for working people (DON'T TAKE THEM -the human body is a thing of beauty). An equal volume of media focus on board room equality would be valuable in a flat-lining UK economy. Pigs might fly!

    Would love to be able to attend but am busy and in Nottingham at that time. Will be very interested in any online pre-debate, after-talk and follow ups. It is a subject close to my heart and my reason. I am an equalist more than feminist and feel gender equality is about working together, that we do not have to be or try to be the same to be equal. Instead we need to play to strengths ... and challenge unhelpful and unequal policy. My rant over :) ... enjoy!
