It is an absolute honour and a privilege to work with UN Women for our next event, Poets vs Gender Inequality, to be held on 7th September 2019 at The Poetry Café, London.
UN Women is the global organisation for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. Founded in 2010, the UN agency works at every level, from working with governments to change policy and legislation, to empowering leaders to drive community change, to delivering grassroots programmes on the ground. Whether it is working to ensure equal political representation of women and girls, or working to end violence and sexual harassment, UN Women works with many organisations, from the corporate to creative sector, to highlight key issues in the UK and across the world, to change the way the world works for women.
To this end, we have brought together the finest poets of all genders to stand up to gender inequality in all its forms including harassment, violence, unequal pay and unequal rights.
