50/50 Day

Join us for 50/50 Day on Wednesday 10th May where thousands of events around the world will be holding film screenings and discussions, and will be linked together by a global Q&A, all talking about how we can get to a more gender balanced world.

There will be a 20 minute screening of the film ’50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present, and Future of Women + Power’. We’ll then be linking into a 24 hour global live Q&A that unifies all the film screenings and features prominent leaders from diverse perspectives discussing how to get to a more gender-balanced world in all sectors of society: business, politics, culture, and home.

We’re at a critical time in the history of gender equality and now is the time that we need to step it up even more. There have been over 300 studies that prove that more gender balance in all sectors of society make it better for everyone. Over half of the countries that rank highest on the gender equality across different sectors, also rank highest on the global happiness index.

Join us for a global conversation on what it will take to get to a more gender-balanced world. To find out more visit www.50-50day.org

This event is being organised by Voluntary Action Swindon, and is co-hosted with Swindon Equality Coalition and Swindon Feminist Network, as part of the Swindon200 project.

We hope you can join us for this special event!
