International Women’s Day Celebration 2020 | Saturday 7 March 2020

We welcome lawyers, policy-makers and campaigners to join us for our sixth annual celebration of International Women’s Day. This year’s event will take place at the Amnesty International UK Human Rights Action Centre in Central London on Saturday 7th March 2020, where our barristers and special guests will be speaking on topics including sexuality, disability and consent and current issues concerning sex and gender discrimination.

We will also have a change makers panel, which will cover climate change and gender. Plus, author Henny Beaumont will talk about their children’s book Equal to Everything, an inspiring story celebrating Lady Hale’s journey from a young girl in Yorkshire to the UK’s highest court.

Topics will include:

  • Sexual safety and novel issues in sex discrimination

  • Change makers, including a focus on gender and climate change

  • An interview with the authors of Equal to Everything: Judge Brenda and the Supreme Court

  • Other exciting speakers.

To receive the full agenda, speaker list and booking details when they are published in January, please email events@doughtystreet.co.uk.

We hope to see you on 7 March 2020.        #DoughtyStWomen
