The Politics of Motherhood - bpas fringe events at Party Conferences

This year, we will be holding events at Labour and Conservative Party Conferences.

Women's decisions about when they should have children, how they should have them and what they should do when they do have them seem increasingly subject to public scrutiny. What role can policymakers play in supporting women's choices and how far can they go?

All are welcome to join bpas and our panels to explore the politics of motherhood today.

Both events are outside the secure zones so you do not need a conference pass to attend.
