University of Brighton student joins Brighton MP Caroline Lucas in a round table discussion on Do we need women-only spaces?

Natasha Scott, studying applied social science, was crowned Miss Transgender Brighton in 2015, and is Arts & Entertainment Director of Hastings Pride. She campaigns to raise awareness and help others suffering from transphobia, and campaigns to raise awareness of inequality in society.

Natasha will be debating the provision of safe or supportive environments for women, as part of International Women’s Day.

The event will be in the Brighton Dome Concert Hall between 2pm and 3.30pm on March 4. Joining the panel will be Lisa Dando of Brighton Women’s Centre, Larissa Kennedy, an activist and member of Girlguiding’s national Advocate panel, and Katharine Sacks-Jones, Director of Agenda, the alliance for women and girls at risk.

Brighton Dome, Brighton Women’s Centre and Brighton Museum have joined forces to present a series of events and activities and programme of speakers, workshops, and arts and crafts.

There will also be live performances and discussion groups, as well as complementary therapies, stalls and information. Workshops include folk singing, poetry, dance, self-defence, and zine making, plus craft workshops for adults and children, including the making of an unconventional patchwork quilt using the slogan Be Bold For Change as the centrepiece.
