What does it mean for women to break down barriers in politics? Who gets to do that, and what are the struggles women face to get there? Join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary ‘Knock Down the House,’ the story of four women – passionate yet inexperienced Democrats – trying to make it in US politics. With neither corporate finance nor backing, they fearlessly take on the political establishment in the American Primaries, building a grassroots movement ready to challenge the succession of powerful male incumbents in congress.

50/50 by 2020
The Wales ‘50/50 by 2020’ campaign is aimed at increasing the number of women in decision making positions to 50% by 2020. Whilst the political landscape may have shifted for some, there is much to do before this becomes a reality for women of colour in Wales.

Join our screening and panel speakers to explore what it means for BAME women to knock down barriers, and transform who gets to be in politics.

This event is a joint collaboration between Gentle/Radical, the University of South Wales, the Henna Foundation, WEN Wales, BAWSO, Women Connect First and Unite.
