As well as being a committed feminist and Londoner of forty years now living in Islington, I will bring valuable experience from my roles as an entrepreneur and charity trustee to the GLA.

I will push for a world where a genuine work-life balance is achievable for all women.

I will deliver the long-overdue reality of equal pay across all types of jobs. I will also increase job sharing and flexible working, including in politics.

As a successful entrepreneur, I know how critical it is to help solve everyday challenges in balancing work demands with caring responsibilities and other activities.

I will use my knowledge and experience to present and debate the women’s equality agenda in a credible and authoritative way.

As a Trustee of Women in Sport I will ensure the GLA works with London’s schools to get more girls and women playing sport and keeping fit.

I will also fight to keep women out of pension poverty, as well as to establish enterprise hubs in London to tap into the skills, experience and potential of older people.

If you give me your vote, I will be an energetic and effective GLA member in all these areas, and more.
