Hi I’m Honor, I’m 18 and I’m the Youth Ambassador of the Women’s Equality Party.
I joined this party a year ago because I grew up believing that I could do anything. At least I did until I turned 12 then the most important thing became the way that I look and nothing else. This party is the only UK political party committed to addressing the sexism that teenage girls’ experience, from our campaign for compulsory sex education in schools to the #WEcount campaign, documenting personal experiences of harassment across the country.
This party has given me and so many others a voice in finally expressing concerns that were previously seen as less important than fox hunting. One of the most exciting things about this party is that it is collaborative and inclusive, anyone can offer their opinions and experiences, regardless of age, race, class or gender.
In the coming months we will be setting up a Women’s Equality Party youth network so that young people across the country can offer their opinions, experiences and energy in shaping what this party looks like.
If you’re aged 14 – 25 years old and want to get involved, sign-up below and I’ll send you regular updates.
We're looking forward to working with you.
