March 2018 National Council

Join us for a fabulous day in Dundee to look further at women and the economy.  Those who came along to Economy 1 in Edinburgh had a brilliant day looking at how many of women's contributions to the economy are hidden or ignored and how we can add women's experience to the conversation.  We are continuing this work in Dundee and you can be part of this whether or not you attended Economy 1.  Find out more and add your own thoughts and insights.

We will have all our usual mix that proves so popular - speakers, workshops, open mic etc with full details below.





We are delighted to have Councillor Lynne Short welcome us to Dundee.


Who’s Counting? Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies, and Global Economics

Open Mic

Any topic goes at our open mic session and it is always very popular!


This is your day so the full day has opportunities to participate with the opportunity to discuss topics with speakers along with the contributions you make at the open mic and workshop sessions.


Please see below for details of how to book and essential information of the venue and catering arrangements.


If you can support us financially then tickets can be purchased at £6 each by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.  We also supply tickets without financial cost so please email us at [email protected] to reserve one of them.  There is no need to explain your reasons, we want to support women without question and with dignity.



If you bought a ticket for our January National Council and then buy a ticket for our National Councils in March and June, we will give you a free ticket for our September National Council!   


Who Can Attend?

The meeting is open to all self identified women.  You do not need to be a member of Women for Independence to attend.  If you need to bring a carer to support you then their ticket is always free.  If your carer is a man then he is also welcome. If you care for another adult or children then you are very welcome to bring them along.  We do not provide a creche for children so they will need to remain with you during the event.




We are in "The Sanctuary" room


Refreshments and Lunch

Tea and coffee will be available on the day for a small charge.  We do not supply lunch.  There is no cafe open in the building on a Saturday but you are welcome to either bring a packed lunch or buy something locally.
