Here are some words from Claire:
I joined the Women’s Equality Party as a founding member because I didn’t feel represented by my local and national government.
Having lived and worked in East Dulwich for over 15 years, I am both a local business owner and a mother at the heart of this community. I have always done business and politics differently. Women make up more than half of this area but we are not represented equally or fairly by Southwark council.
I want to create the change I want to see for my children! Throughout my life, I have seen a problem and taken action.
WE will put equality at the top of the agenda. Because equality is better for everyone.
Southwark Council has been held by Labour for 8 years. It’s time for a new perspective and independent voice to hold them to account! I have autonomy outside of our WEP manifesto meaning you can count on me personally to take a positive interest in local women’s equality, childcare, violence against women and girls, environmental issues, LGBTGI+ issues, housing and the needs of small business owners.
