Vote Leisa Taylor on 4 May
Politics is changing. WE can make a difference.
At this year’s county council elections you’ve got the opportunity to do something different – by voting for the Women’s Equality Party.
I’m standing in Rainbow Hill because I’m tired of the same old party politics. I want to work with all parties to put equality first. That means tackling the pay gap that sees Worcester women earn on average 18% less than men, fighting to protect services for children under threat from government and county council cuts and working to protect vulnerable women in all our communities.
WE can achieve all this because WE believe in working with others to get things done - with the support of Worcestershire Women’s Equality Party members who, like me, are passionate about change for the better. Vote for me and get us.
Don’t miss this opportunity to give women a stronger voice in Rainbow Hill.
On 4 May use your vote in Worcestershire County Council elections to vote for Leisa Taylor, Women’s Equality Party.
The Women’s Equality Party will stand up for women in Rainbow Hill.
Equal pay for equal work. In Worcester women earn, on average, £100 less than men. We want to see equal pay for women and an equal opportunity to thrive.
Equal childcare. WE want to see access to affordable childcare for all parents who want to go back to work before their children start school.
Equal Representation. Only a quarter of our county councillors are women. We want to redress that balance and ensure a voice for women in our communities - it’s the only way to achieve better decisions for everyone.
Ending violence against women and girls. Violence against women and girls is a stain on our society. We want to build stronger communities by making prevention, justice and support a top priority in our county.
Equal education. We want to work with young people and their families to ensure that new laws on compulsory sex and relationships education is relevant and sensitive to their needs.
Women and girls are part of the backbone of our communities. A vote for us is a vote for them.
Vote Sally Smith on 4 May
You have four votes in Uplands. Please give one to Equality.
Sally Smith will put equality first, every time.
"Uplands is a wonderful, vibrant community. I will help it thrive, supporting local businesses and giving women the same opportunities as men to earn a fair living.
I will keep Uplands affordable for all families, investing in our community and keeping it diverse and welcoming.
I will make sure all parents have access to affordable childcare, and will fight for equal parenting, equal pay and flexible working.
I care more about good ideas than party politics, and will work collaboratively to get the best deal for everyone in Uplands.
A bit more about me: I have a masters in Gender and International Relations run a successful business from Uplands and live with two small boys and their father. When I’m not at my desk I’m on the beach, in the park or on my mountain bike."
WE need someone who will make sure that childcare works for parents and the wider economy, not just for schools. Labour talks about childcare provision, but created a system that does not work for working parents in Swansea. Parents have to pay private providers to shuttle children between “free” hours and the necessary paid wrap around care. This negates any benefits. Childcare has to work for parents, this will have major benefits the economy. Money spent on childcare gives a better return than on infrastructure.
WE need someone who sees the unpaid work carried out everyday by parents and carers and understands the ways in which this benefits the local economy. For too long there have been cuts disproportionally effecting women, while job creation has disproportionally benefited men. Someone needs to stand up for women.
Work, skills & training
WE need to hold Swansea Council to account to make sure that promises of job creation doesn’t just mean the male dominated industries. We need to create secure jobs for women as well.
Who will ensure that new apprenticeships are funded equally for young women, not just for our young men? We need to push our schools into understanding gender equality; so young girls and boys can explore careers beyond pink & blue.
Ending violence against women & girls
WE need to end all forms of violence against women and girls, working with women’s organisations and putting prevention, protection, provision, and justice at the heart of all our policies.
WE will tackle the funding crisis for specialist services and ensure no woman is ever turned away from life saving services.
WE will ensure all local decision-makers receive adequate training about the gendered nature of violence against women and girls so that they understand the importance of specialist services that are for and led by women, including disabled women and BME women.
Transport for all
Women are more likely than men to use public transport, less likely to travel long distances for work and more likely to cycle if the cycling infrastructure is safe. Transport investment needs to deliver access and greater opportunities for all of us.
Swansea Council needs to look for ways to provide better transport for people with hidden disabilities. WE will combat street harassment so that women can travel freely around the city.

Carol Keen for Sheffield
On May 4th vote Carol Keen for Sheffield City Council in the Southey by-election.
WE are tired of the same politicians doing the same politics. And when politicians ignore women, everybody suffers. The Women’s Equality Party puts personal safety, fair pay and affordable childcare at the top of our priorities.
1 in 4 women is affected by domestic abuse and our streets do not feel safe. WE will represent you on Sheffield City Council and improve women’s lives with our work.
At last, a party that represents you!
The Women’s Equality Party will stand up for Sheffield’s women:
→ Ending violence against women and girls.
Whether it’s from street harassment or domestic violence, women are at risk. WE will focus on preventing violence against women and seeking justice when it happens.
→ Equal pay for equal work
For every £1 men earn, women earn just 81p. WE are dedicated to campaigning for equal pay for equal work.
→ Equal childcare
Women find it impossible to access affordable childcare and balance this with their need to work. WE are committed to helping children spend more time with both of their parents.
→ Equal education
Girls and boys should be encouraged to learn and to respect each other. They should aim for their dreams, regardless of their gender.
