Outsourced women workers and their colleagues at the University of London (UoL) will be protesting for equal rights with direct employees.

The protest on 10 July outside Senate House will highlight UoL’s hypocrisy as it holds events nominally in favour of women’s rights, while denying decent terms and conditions to migrant and black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) women.

It will coincide with the university’s ‘Breaking the Silence: Women, Leadership, and #MeToo’, event with speakers including Catherine Mayer, founder of the Women’s Equality Party, and is part of its #LeadingWomen season, which aims ‘to break down the barriers women still face in education and the workplace today’.
