The new Mothers for a Progressive Alliance group is being launched by Compass and Jane Chelliah, the blogger ‘ambitiousmamas’, to push for issues that affect mothers to be adopted as a cross-party effort. ‘
Mothers for a Progressive Alliance will put forward issue areas and make a case using matricentrism principles as to why mothers need a political discourse that represents their interests.
This event will be chaired by Frances Foley from Compass. We will be joined by speakers:
Dr Mark Boden, male feminist and Marxist scholar
Kirsten Bayes, network speaker with the Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT)
Christine El Issa, activist against racism
Jane Chelliah on how Matricentric policies can benefit from a progressive alliance
There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and action planning!
Refreshments will be provided. Children very welcome. Disability access with a wheelchair ramp.
