Women Talking, City Listening

The lives of women in this country have changed so much since we got the vote just over 100 years ago.

What is Women Talking, City Listening?

Life is continuously improving for women: we can now get mortgages, hold senior jobs, sit as MPs in Westminster, and receive fairer treatment from the law. But there is still much more that needs to be done.

We’re excited to announce a new project in Leicester that will concentrate on having meaningful conversations with women, to better understand the issues they face today.

Funded by central government, the Women Talking, City Listening project will collate information from women across the city between 2019 and 2020. We will directly report to the city mayor and government the ways in which women can be better supported, as emphasised by you.

Before the coronavirus lockdown, there were lots of ways for you to share your thoughts – through workshops, forums, fun days, surveys and much more. We also invited comments on our Consultation Hub.

If you would like to get involved or receive information about Women Talking, City Listening, please send us an email or call Halima Abowath on 0116 454 4178.

We will not pass your details on to anyone else and will only use this information to send you information about the Women Talking, City Listening project.
