Winning with Women: Can one nation Labour achieve gender equality? In partnership with the Young Fabians’ ideas project on one nation feminism
6-7.30pm, Wednesday 16 July 2014
Committee room 18, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA
Alison McGovern MP Shadow minister for international development
Claire McCarthy Head of external and political affairs, Co-operative party
Florence Nosegbe Councillor, Lambeth council and NEC candidate
Chair: Heather Vernon Chair, Young Fabians’ ideas project on one nation feminism
The event discussed women’s voting patterns, how the wider electorate (including men) see policy issues that are traditionally seen as feminist and how we can embed principles of gender equality and feminism into a One Nation Labour narrative. Are these ideas popular with voters and if so how can they become part of the broader Labour campaign?
Winning with Women, as part of the Campaign for a Labour Majority, is a Progress initiative to bring together people from across the Labour movement to improve women’s political representation, and discuss the role that women in the party and the electorate will play in winning Labour a majority in 2015. Progress is committed to a bigger, more diverse Labour party and wants to reflect this in how we work, who writes for us and who gets involved.
Progressive centre-ground Labour politics does not come for free.
Our work depends on you.
