Green Party's Daniella Radice holding women's rights event
THE former Green Party mayoral candidate is leading a workshop on lessons from the Environmental and Women’s Rights movements.
Daniella Radice, now a ward councillor candidate for Bishopston, will be holding the event as part of the African-Initiatives Conference on Women’s Rights taking place in Broadmead Baptist church on Saturday.
Ms Radice said following the election it has become clear that women are under-represented in Bristol.
"At present, 17% of Bristol's councillors are women. Women's rights have achieved a lot over the past 100 years, but the struggle continues.

"Women are on the front line in the face of austerity due to cuts in public sector not to mention cuts to domestic abuse services and childcare.
"I am proud the Green Party makes sure its representation is shared equally between the genders. Indeed, both its MP, and national leader, are women," she said.
She added that Saturday's events will provide an opportunity for exploring the connections between the Green Party and women's rights.
She said: “I also recognise the many similarities between the women’s and environmental rights movements.
"Both are about challenging existing power structures and questioning the assumptions of existing institutions.
"In this workshop I hope to have a good discussion on how the two movements can learn from each others’ experiences and think about how working together in the future might be profitable.”
