**** Election Special*******
This Sunday, 2nd May 3-5pm
Macdonald Road Library
Opposite Tesco’s, on Leith Walk

Following on from the hustings in Edinburgh South, come and join us, to discuss
Elections and Feminism, with tea and cake.

Is there a women’s vote? Do we share common interests?
Does having woman candidates matter?  Are women more interested in
certain issues?
Are parties/candidates interested in gender inequality?  Is anyone
else really irritated by election coverage?

The group is women only (trans inclusive), with children welcome.
Macdonal Road Library is Wheelchair accessible, any other
accessibility needs please get in touch.
