Joanna Shaw

I am 43 and a Londoner born and bred.

I live in Peckham with two housemates. I was brought up in Ealing and studied at the local comprehensive. I’ve lived, worked, studied and had fun all over our amazing city.

I have worked as a barrister for 15 years, in the fields of family and housing law. For the past three years I’ve been vice-chair of Liberty, the civil liberties and human rights NGO.

I’m a passionate advocate of justice and human rights.

I am also a passionate advocate of the Women’s Equality Party.

If elected, I will tackle the lack of diversity in politics and law, and the scandalous under-representation of women at all levels of policy and law-making.

I will stand up for equality in my city, putting my skills and experience to work.

The realities of inequality are starkly demonstrated in London: the pay gap, alack of affordable childcare and lack of housing will be top of my agenda.

I will put these issues at the top of the GLA’s agenda.
