Launch of our #DoughtyStWomen Report from International Women’s Day

Date: Thursday 10 November 2016

Time: 18:00 - 20:00

Location: Doughty Street Chambers, 53-54 Doughty Street, London WC1N 2LS

Doughty Street Chambers is pleased to be hosting an event as part of its #DoughtyStWomen series.  We will be launching our report of events held in March 2016 to celebrate International Women’s Day and giving you a preview of our plans for IWD 2017.


Some of the key issues discussed at our March 2016 seminars were Women at Work, Redress for Victims, Women as Defendants, and Women and the Welfare State.  These topics, including more recent developments, will be briefly discussed by a panel of Doughty Street Women chaired by Henrietta Hill QC, and joined by Caoilfhionn Gallagher, Harriet Johnson, and Katie O'Byrne.


Our choice of date is intentional as 10 November is Equal Pay Day 2016.  The current gender pay gap means, in effect, that relative to men women stop earning on a day in November.  Despite the introduction of the Equal Pay Act forty-five years ago, British women still earn less than British men.  We will explore some of the reasons why, look at how the law can be used to redress this imbalance, and suggest some practical ways in which you can help close the gap.


RSVP by Tuesday 8 November 2016


If you didn’t manage to purchase one of our #DoughtyStWomen mugs previously they will be available on the night for £10 each, with all profits going to support the work of Women in Prison.
