The Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities and I have regular meetings and engagement with women’s organisations and organisations that represent the views of women. In November last year we held our Annual National NGO Consultation Event, organised by the Government Equalities Office, where we heard the views of around 100 women’s organisations from across the UK. We will be looking forward to taking part in a variety of events and activities to mark International Women’s Day and the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in March 2017.

We are currently looking at how we can make better use of social media and other digital channels to increase the reach and frequency of our engagement with women’s groups.
