Subject: [spais-grc] Feminist journals meeting - London 15 Jan

I am on the editorial collective of Feminist Review and we are planning a London-based meeting with other feminist journals to discuss how to build alliances and responses to the steady marginalisation and pressures (financial, gold open access etc) on feminist journals by the publishers. Meeting is scheduled to take place at SOAS on 15 Jan. This is to alert you about the meeting and check whether you (or anyone else you know) is on the editorial board of a feminist journals in case you want to join the meeting. Email me for more info.

WAND has been active since 2010, promoting women’s rights and wellbeing through raising money for women’s services and providing opportunities for women in Dorset to socialise and share their skills. Our activities include the highly successful events Reclaim the Night and Dorset Women’s Day.

As we approach our 10th anniversary, WAND is keen to review our outlook and activities to ensure they still reflect and cater for the needs of our supporters and the girls and women of Dorset – and we’d like you to get involved!

Women's Budget Group have a new confirmed date for the launch of their women’s poverty report:

Wednesday 18 July, 6.30 – 8pm at the House of Lords

Please let me know if you would like to attend and feel free to inform your contact networks about the event and the new date. We will circulate the new updated invite soon.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes,
