  • Women Driving Political Change

Sunday, 15 July 2018

I was delighted to organise the Birmingham Pankhurst Party, on 15 July 2018.

The Pankhurst Party was organised to commemorate the birthday of Emmeline Pankhurst and to mark this centenary of women's (limited) suffrage. 

The non political event, included a range of speakers with experiences in the field of politics, business and public appointments. The event was attended by women in the West Midlands region.

This year women across the UK wanted to share this honour. Many Pankhurst parties took place in London, Leeds and Coventry.

In this centenary of women's (limited) suffrage, we need more women to come forward to stand for public life such as councillors, school governors and MPs. I was delighted to speak about gender equality, and how to encourage BAME candidates to be involved in public life including mentoring and training.

If you know anyone who has the skills for public office, volunteering in the community, do get in touch. 

The #AskHerToStand campaign was started by 50:50 Parliament to ensure we raise awareness on the opportunities available to women and encourage others to enter public life.
