As part of the Labour Party Women in Leadership training, I took a trip up country to Newcastle where we were privileged to be joined by former Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and legend Harriet Harman.
I have recently read Harriet’s book of her struggle to promote women’s rights as a lawyer and as part of a Labour Government.
Any cause is hard, but the fight to secure the rights we take for granted now was thanks to Harriet and others and her dedication and selflessness. What an inspiration!
It was an honour to stand beside her and the women across the Country who within the Labour movement will continue to fight for gender parity.
