News

Welcome to the news section of WEN.  Stories about the unfair treatment women experience in the workplace are frequently mentioned in the media and our news section will reflect some of these cases.  We will report on employment tribunal decisions that affect women at work.  Women are also badly under-represented in the media, so our news section will also celebrate the professional achievements of women in public and professional life.
