What does Brexit mean for women?

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Does Brexit spell the end for women's rights or will it do the reverse? Debate the pros and cons of the referendum result with leading UK political voices.

Discuss whether Brexit signals a new era for female leadership or reinforces old boys-club politics, as the government prepares the way for Britain’s exit from the EU.

Speakers include Stella Creasy, Labour MP for Walthamstow since 2010; Baroness Jenny Jones, Green Party of England and Wales politician and member of the House of Lords; Suella Fernandes, Conservative MP for Fareham since 2015; and Joanna Maycock, Secretary General of the European Women’s Lobby since May 2014.

Chaired by Sarah Sands, editor of the London Evening Standard.
