The theme of today's conversation was the way to progress towards more equality between genders through fair trade. If you have missed it, you can listen to the recording in this post!
Women across the world still face extraordinary discrimination in education, work and decision-making. Looking at Equal Exchange’s Coffee Grown by Women, the work of Get Paper Industries in Nepal and Weaving Destination’s work with trafficked women in India, we examine what more could be done in the world of Fair Trade, both at home and abroad.
Chair: Sarah Boyack MSP
Panellists: Rachel Farey (One World Shop), Fiona Mailley (Equal Exchange), Javita Narang (Weaving Destination)
