WE Nottingham have asked local candidates in the General Election the following questions about their commitment to Women's Equality for our first ever Women's Equality Party Virtual Hustings.
- How will you ensure that Brexit will not turn back the clock on gender equality and will ensure a fair deal for women?
- What would be your approach to establishing robust Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) in all schools?
Equal Parenting and Caregiving
- What would be your approach to supporting more equal parenting, for example shared paid parental leave?
An End to Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG)
- We are in support of the Nottingham Domestic and Sexual Violence campaigns group which we are aware have asked candidates questions around VAWG and will be sharing links to candidates responses to their questions. Do you have any comments to add about tackling and addressing gender based violence locally?
- What has been your track record in promoting equality in your previous work and career?
As our members, supporters and followers in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire can’t vote for one of the seven women standing for the Women’s Equality Party in this General Election we want to know from candidates what their future commitment to our aims to further Women's Equality in order to help people make a more informed decision.
We have received answers from a number of candidates. Click on the links below to read their responses.
