Harriet Williams

Harriet Williams
Deputy Leader 

Harriet is an active member of the Camden Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG)
Board. Her involvement in this board (established in 2022) came about in response to an inquiry led by the Camden Women's Forum to address VAWG in Camden. She is mindful of the sobering statistic that 1 in 4 women in England and Wales will encounter domestic abuse in their lifetime and many of her fellow group members have their own lived experiences. Her political alignment is with the Women's Equality Party, where she finds resonance with their national commitment to ending violence against women.

As a founder, Harriet operates independently as a Young Parent Consultant. Her services encompass public speaking, research, and content writing, with a primary focus on projects related to young parents aged 25 and under. She is resolute in her dedication to the Women's Equality Party's mission to achieve equitable parenting and caregiving responsibilities. She is a single parent to a 'tweenage' daughter, a role that she views as both extraordinary and challenging, as it presents its own set of difficulties as well as remarkable moments. This unique aspect of her life further underscores her commitment to advocating for women's equality.

She co-authored the Young Parents in London: Living with Precariousness report (2018) for Partnership for Young London and 4in10 - a campaigning network of 400 London organisations working to improve the lives of the 4 in 10 children living in poverty in the capital.

You can hear her talk about her own personal experience of birth trauma as a black woman in Episode 4: ‘Birth’ of the Audible series The Bias Diagnosis (2021), where she highlights the fact that black mothers are more likely than white women in the UK to die during pregnancy, childbirth and in the first 6 weeks of giving birth.

She supported Barnardo’s on their Care-Experienced Parents Unite for Change Report (2022) which was formed because parents’ voices were largely absent in a lot of Barnardo’s research.

In recent times, Harriet's interests have led her toward the realms of mind-body healing and holistic healthcare. Her personal journey, shaped by her experience in healing from eczema and topical steroid addiction, has transformed her into a skin influencer, educator, and advocate for Topical Steroid Withdrawal. Beyond her professional endeavours, Harriet enjoys engaging in DIY projects and is currently pursuing her studies at college, enrolled in an all-women's construction course. Harriet joined the Women’s Equality Party in January 2022.

 

Stacy Hart

Stacy Hart
Deputy Leader 

Stacy Hart is a married mum of two who grew up in the Farnborough area, raised by a single mum in often difficult circumstances, and is passionate about intersectional equality, social justice, and environmental issues. She identifies as bisexual and has recently been diagnosed with ADHD.

Stacy has always been passionate about equality but never saw herself as having the right sort of background for politics. Having volunteered in the community in multiple ways and seen the need for change, she realised she wanted to actively work for it, and that bringing diverse voices to local politics—including voices such as hers—was a vital part of that. Stacy joined the Women’s Equality Party in October 2015. Since starting WEP’s Basingstoke branch, she has led multiple successful campaigns on issues such as White Ribbon accreditation for Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and changing Licensing Policy to protect women and minoritised communities in venues selling alcohol.

This year Stacy Hart was elected as the first ever Women’s Equality Party borough councillor. A whopping 1659 voters in her ward put their cross next to Stacy’s name and made history. She stormed to victory with 59.3% of the vote.
