On Tuesday 15th June, the National Women’s Council (NWC) will launch ‘No Woman Left Behind’ — the Council’s new and ambitious Strategic Plan 2021-2024.

You can join in the conversation on how best NWC can achieve their ambition of true equality for all women and how they can mobilise and campaign for women’s rights and equality in a new and more inclusive way than ever before.

Through the Council’s strategic plan, they want to transform society so no woman experiences poverty, racism, violence, discrimination or exclusion, and all women can realise their full economic, social and political rights. NWC want to bring a robust feminist perspective to how we address the climate crisis and how we respond to future challenges.
