3 Sue Bennett remembers discussion about being a women-only group

Transcript:

I remember a really big debate about were we going to be a women’s group or not?

And there were people who were for and against this.  It didn’t feel that we were in such a bad position after all.  What message were we sending if we excluded the men?  Didn’t we want the men to be on our side?

And I can remember, what one of, I can remember so vividly, there was a panel, a fire panel, in the door, and I can remember there was a fire panel.  And we were having this conversation, quite a heated conversation about whether there should be men or whether there should be men and women and so forth.  And I can remember three senior managers’ faces in this fire panel gooning at us, going ‘Nah, nah, n’nah,nah, bleh, bleh’.  And I said, ‘Look behind you, I think we need to be on our own.’
