Sexism protest in city centre

Have your say

EQUAL opportunities campaigners are today staging a march and demonstration in Sheffield city centre.

The Sheffield Against Sexism: We Won’t Calm Down, Dear event begins at 12.30pm with a march from Weston Park to Barker’s Pool, where there will be a rally and speeches.

Among those addressing the demonstration will be Green Party central ward Coun Jillian Creasy, who said “The three big political parties claim to treat women fairly. But their actions on jobs and public services hurt women even more than men.”

She said the Greens ‘really act to support women on issues that are important to them’.
