Tackling Discrimination: Miscellaneous campaigns

In 1993, TG passed the following mandate:

That the Townswomen's Guilds adopt a policy of equal opportunity, allowing TG to campaign on issues that discriminate directly or indirectly against women, without specific mandate. (e.g. childcare, DSS benefits).

This gives us the freedom to support campaigns which we do not have a direct mandate for, often through supporting other organisations who are campaigning against discrimination of a specific kind.
