It is over 100 years since the first women won the right to vote in the UK and women are still being excluded from politics. In the 2016 Brexit referendum, 85% of press coverage went to men, and in parliamentary debates since male MPs have done 90% of the talking.
The Brexit debate has been framed by the concerns of the men who have dominated it: jobs, business and trade. Meanwhile, our NHS and social care are at breaking point, with thousands of nurses from the EU leaving as a result of uncertainty and hostility they face.
The devastating restrictions to women's rights being threatened in Alabama and other US states are still a daily reality for Northern Irish women, who have been abandoned by the UK government. Across Europe, the rise of regressive populism is as ever targeting women and minorities first.
