Why are so many women homeless?

A ThinkIn is an open editorial conference, where we take your expertise and experience and use it to shape our journalism. The only rule is no questions - we want to hear what you think.

Sheltering in doorways in major cities all across the United Kingdom, the number of women rough sleeping is growing at a truly alarming rate. And for them, life on the streets is much tougher than it is for men: one in four women will report a sexual assault on the street in any one year; they're physically and verbally abused by others, they have particular personal hygiene needs that make day-to-day existence so much harder. What is driving women to the streets and what are we doing to help them?

Chair: David Taylor, Editor and Partner, Tortoise and Audrey Gillan, freelance journalist

What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?
A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a 'leader conference' in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It's where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It's where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
Drinks from 18:00, starts promptly at 18:30. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'!

We film our ThinkIns so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren't there in person.
