Round-up of WI presence at the 2023 National Eisteddfod


Round-up of WI presence at the 2023 National Eisteddfod

The WI stand at the Llŷn and Eifionydd National Eisteddfod in Boduan was hosted by Gwynedd Caernarfon Federation and based on the theme ‘freedom’.

Some of the issues that the WI has campaigned on linked to ‘freedom’, dating from the early years of the WI up to the present, were promoted. These include campaigning for improved diagnosis for autistic women and women with ADHD; ending violence against women and the human trafficking of women and children; cervical screening; and access to local bus services, all of which make such a difference to the lives of women.
