Women’s Empowerment Network (WEN)

Our Women’s Empowerment Network (WEN) has 10 members representing GRT women. The aim of the network is to create a peer support group, a platform for voices to be heard, to harness existing skills within the group and give all GRT women a stronger collective voice.

The network will support other less fortunate GRT women from the community to build confidence and to address discrimination. The group was launched on International Women’s Day 2017 in the Houses of Parliament.

The WEN hosted another event in parliament to mark International Women’s Day in March 2018.

Read the briefing paper for more information about the objectives for the group.

Never Going to Beat You

Never Going to Beat You is a play that threads together the different stories of women of all ages from the Gypsy, Traveller and Roma communities. The women participated in numerous workshops hosted by the Traveller Movement’s women’s project with the playwright Jennie Buckman from Giants Theatre Company over a 12 month period to share their experiences. A total of 18 women participated throughout the project.

“An important, poignant piece of theatre. It brought me to tears. This script telling stories from the community is incredibly powerful.”
