Hi,

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-41996782

"A women's rights group launched following a remark by Donald Trump is staging its first international conference.

The Nasty Women event in Gateshead will feature global campaigners and aims to highlight equality and LGBT rights.

The movement was started by New York artist Roxanne Jackson following a presidential debate in October 2016.

During the TV debate Mr Trump called Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton "a nasty woman".

His comment trended on social media and within an hour, about a quarter of a million tweets mentioned the phrase.

Ms Jackson will be among the guest speakers at the Thought Foundation venue in Birtley, alongside award-winning British artist Sarah Maple and Airco Caravan, founder of Nasty Women Amsterdam.

About 60 delegates are expected at the conference and there will also be an exhibition of work by artists from a number of countries.

Lady Kitt, a Newcastle mum-of-two who has helped organise the event, said: "There's so much work still to be done [on equality], for example with the gender pay gap.

"And when I had children I realised how much gender-specific language there is - it's not to do with their interests or personality.

"Some of the work is anti-Trump, using text and things he's tweeted, some of it is more related to feminism and human rights.

"I think people are really concerned. They feel very much the world is moving in a way it never was before."

WTF ???

Are they going to go via Brompton Cemetery, dig up Emmeline Pankhurst and take her along?

Norman:

Since Halloween is thought to have begun amongst the Celts prior to Christianity reaching the British shores we technically exported it to the USA...

But I know to whit you are referring... :wink:

I wonder if Grace Mugabe is one of the global campaigners speaking at the event. She has a bit of time on her hands and is definitely having equality problems.

No doubt our highly respected national broadcaster will keep us up-to-date with constant updates on their 24 hour rolling bollox channel.
