I want to help build a better, fairer and more equal world for my daughter...

...and the millions of others like her. I'm fed up with feeling that I don't have a political voice in any meaningful sense. I want more women in Parliament, representing our half of the electorate, as well as truly equal pay and properly equal opportunities in wider society (and I don't just mean paying lip service). WEP has given me hope that together we can make all this happen. I know it won't materialise all at once, but if we are tenacious and determined, eventually it will. The Suffragette movement got us the vote, now we need to raise their banner again and not lower it again till true equality is a reality. I want women's equality in the UK to become something so natural that our grandchildren (of both sexes) don't even have to discuss it any more. Is that really too much to ask?
