What does the EU Referendum mean for women?

8 March, 2016 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

Policy Network is delighted to welcome you to the upcoming event ‘What does the EU Referendum mean for women?’, taking place in celebration of International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8th March, 12:15 – 13:30 (lunch provided from 12:00).


The event will take place at the Policy Network offices, 11 Tufton Street, Westminster, SW1P 3QB.


Women voters could hold the key to the EU referendum. There are one million more women than men in the UK. The polls show that women are nearly twice as likely as men to be undecided about Europe. They also suggest that women are more open to changing their minds than men and are less certain about whether they will vote.


It is therefore imperative for progressives to prosecute the arguments that will convince women voters of the benefits of remaining in the European Union.


The evidence suggests that these arguments are much more likely to be effective with women by using local and personal examples of the benefits that have been won at European level, benefits that will be lost if we were to leave.


To coincide with International Women’s Day, Policy Network will host a topical discussion with politicians and opinion formers about what those arguments should be and how they should be communicated most effectively to women in the run up to 23 June.
