Cllr Margaret Lancaster, Coventry City CouncilCouncillor Mrs Margaret Lancaster, Chair of the City Council's Social Justice Policy Team, said:

"We are looking to build on the very successful women's festivals over the past seven years by involving as many people and communities as possible.  I am sure their are lots of exciting ideas and interesting events which could be included in this years programme.

It is the involvement of individuals and organisations across the city which gives a festival its own particular style, and Coventry City Councils is committed to ensuring the on-going success of this event through equality of oportunity and a wide and varied programme of events."
