Wednesday 17 August – MOBILISING for Gender Equality

Today’s theme in Mobilise: The Anti Cuts Festival at Edinburgh Fringe is the massive gender discrimination within the Condem agenda -public service cuts, pension attacks, welfare changes and taxation all have a disproportionate impact on women, compounding the longstanding and endemic problem of low pay. Stand up for gender equality. 

Come along to Fringe Venue 138 - UNISON Office, Belford Road and join in - campaigning can be fun.
