The Girls Network looking for North East women mentors

The Girls' Network works with schools to match 14-19 year old girls with strong female professionals to act as a mentor to increase confidence, aspirations and self belief. Most girls are influenced by the people closest to them, if they do not see women in challenging and rewarding jobs in varied roles they are unable to have the self belief needed to aspire to these roles themselves. You can't be what you can't see! 

Rape Crisis & other women's rights groups call on MPs to back Abortion Bill

On 23rd October 2018, Members of Parliament will have the opportunity to vote on a Ten-Minute Rule Bill to take abortion out of the criminal law in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. This is a key measure for protecting the right to access abortion services, particularly for women in abusive or controlling relationships. The End Violence Against Women Coalition, the Fawcett Society, Imkaan, Rape Crisis England & Wales, Southall Black Sisters and Women’s Aid Federation of England support this bill and ask MPs to vote in favour.
