Something to go to in Palmerston North

The 26 for babies campaign is organising a meeting of Manawatu women to discuss Sue Moroney's Parental Leave and Employment Protection (Six Months' Paid Leave) Amendment Bill:

When: Monday 27th August 4.00pm – 6.00pm
Where: PSA House, King Street, Palmerston North
RSVP: Lyno@nzno.org.nz

The decision to restrict this to women is odd, and makes it seem as if paid parental leave is just a "women's issue" or that only women ought to be interested in it. Neither is true. Its a matter of basic equality, which affects every parent or would-be parent - and that's something we should all be interested in.

Update: I've since had a meeting from one of the organisers saying that everyone is welcome. FaceSpy event is here.
