Women have the right to self-organise

This is the speech that Ruth Serwotka gave at the London meeting, A Woman’s Place is Resolute. She spoke on our first demand.

Women have a right to self-organisation, to speak and to be heard free from fear of abuse, threat or vilification in public and political discourse and in academia. This should be actively facilitated by those with civic or legal responsibility for promoting equality.
