I am 43 and a Londoner born and bred.
I live in Peckham with two housemates. I was brought up in Ealing and studied at the local comprehensive. I’ve lived, worked, studied and had fun all over our amazing city.
I have worked as a barrister for 15 years, in the fields of family and housing law. For the past three years I’ve been vice-chair of Liberty, the civil liberties and human rights NGO.
I’m a passionate advocate of justice and human rights.
I am also a passionate advocate of the Women’s Equality Party.
If elected, I will tackle the lack of diversity in politics and law, and the scandalous under-representation of women at all levels of policy and law-making.
I will stand up for equality in my city, putting my skills and experience to work.
The realities of inequality are starkly demonstrated in London: the pay gap, alack of affordable childcare and lack of housing will be top of my agenda.
I will put these issues at the top of the GLA’s agenda.
