Until we end the scourge of violence against women and girls (VAWG) none of us will be free.
I could never imagine that the girl who grew up on a council estate, with no formal education could run for public office. But I did. When I ran for Liverpool City Region (LCR) Mayor for the Women’s Equality Party (WEP) in 2017, the LCR did not have a strategy to end VAWG. Fast forward to 2019 and because of my campaign, using the WEP approach of urging other parties to steal our policies, the LCR now DOES have this strategy. The elected Mayor asked me to write the strategy and I delivered a real win for our Party. I now live in London with my lesbian partner and can see first-hand we need this approach. So many lives are marred by violence, whether it’s gender-based or knife crime, and nobody should have to live with it.
Now is WEP’s time to win a seat—we’re going to shake up London’s political establishment and I want to be part of the team that does that. Vote for me—I have the skills, capability and desire to help to transform London, change the lives of Londoners and represent YOU.
