The Emily Tree works with a host of inspiring organisations and individuals. Our thanks go to:
Our Emily Tree Champion MPs for their continued support of our campaign for better representation in Parliament, for giving speeches at our events, for hosting visits to Parliament and for organising work experience placements in their offices for our Emily Tree girls.
Special mentions should be given to Jane Ellison MP for Battersea, Gareth Thomas MP for Harrow West, Nick Hurd MP for Pinner, Ruislip and Northwood and to Heidi Alexander MP for Lewisham East.
The Emily Tree has worked with The Challenge – the UK’s leading Social Integration Charity and largest provider of National Citizen Service – since its founding in 2013. We have run a number of large-scale events aimed at engaging young women with the issues that most affect them, be it FGM, equal pay, the No More Page Three campaign or politics. To date, we’ve worked with over 200 young women from the Challenge.
We are currently working with The Challenge to design our events for 2015.
Very recently, we have had the pleasure to collaborate with the Youth Media Agency on an upcoming project. More information to follow!
To Freedom’s Cause is a play about Emily Davison written by Kate Willoughby, our dear friend and partner:
“To Freedom’s Cause should be seen by every woman and teenage girl. And by anybody who couldn’t be bothered to vote. Moving, stirring and passionate.“ – Jane Garvey (BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour presenter)
Kate is championing the #EmilyMatters campaign and we work closely with her on a number of projects.
Special thanks goes to Dr. Helen Pankhurst, the great-granddaughter of Emmeline and Sylvia Pankhurst, for the wonderful letter she wrote for the girls involved in our very first pilot project back in 2013.
We now present this letter to young women after they complete our workshops. It’s something that we hope will continue to remind them of the fight for gender equality and we’ve since heard that many choose to frame it!
We’re very proud to be joining Helen for her Walk for Women event on Sunday 8th of March 2015.
We work with so many individuals and most of them are speakers at our big events, so we can’t name them all. In particular, we’d like to thank Yas Necati, Nicki Williams, Phillipa Bilton, Irene Cockroft, Lucy Anne Holmes and Reem Abu-Hayyeh.
