RMT Women: 100 years of fighting for equality
Event date: 
Tuesday, 15th of December '15

2015 marks 100 years of women’s membership of the RMT.

Through the last 100 years, women working as train drivers, guards, engineers, signallers, station staff and in all roles on the railway have proved that the industry is not a ‘man’s world’. Yet women have continually had to battle against sexism and still remain a minority in the rail industry.

Join us for an evening of socialising, food, drink and discussion on taking the fight forward for the next 100 years.

This event is open to all members of the RMT, men and women. We will welcome members of other unions and campaigns for equality and women’s rights.

In the early evening, author of ‘Railwaywomen’, Helena Wojtczak, will share inspiring stories of pioneering women working on the railway and in our union, from the first woman member of the NUR in 1915.
