Monday 22nd Feb WI Social

Come along to this friendly social. 6pm to 8pm Mon 22nd Feb @ The 52 Club, 52 Gower St, nearest Tube s Goodge st ( 5 mins walk), opposite Cheney St. Down the outside steps to the basement entrance for this UCL hospital health & fitness club. The bar is closed that night but there are drinks vending machines but we suggest you bring a tea or coffee with you from Pret/Starbucks nr Goodge St Tube and meet us in the bar area. Bar is on the left as you walk through the door. Next time we'll go for a night when the bar is open.

The theme for tonight is body image & media & a possible LWEWI campaign. The WI has a long and impressive history around taking up issues that matter to women ( & men). We'd like to test out the interest in our WI for a campaign and WI national resolution on the way the impact that media advertising and articles have on our perception and satisfaction with our body & appearance. There lots of interesting articles on this subject via the internet and we'd like to sound out members for taking up this issue. One possibility is to put forward a resolution to the National Federation of WIs and ask them to campaign for it in the same way that they & we campaign for Stop Violence against women, climate change and Bees! The reason we are holding this meeting now is that we need to get planning to get a resolution voted on by our WI before we put it forward for selection and time is passing. If you can't make the 22nd then do let either Carrie or Georgia know of your interest asap

Bring your knitting /crochet or other craft projects to this session, a warm comfortable venue that are keen to have us there.

Phone Carrie 07789954972 to let her know you are planning to join us.
