Three out of the five candidates for the Labour leadership have now replied to the Lead for Women letter.
In his reply, Ed Balls says:
Thank you for writing to me about gender equality within the Labour Party. This is a crucial issue for the whole Labour movement and for women across the country.
Labour has always been the party of equality. But though we have made great progress as a result of campaigns often led by women in the Labour Party, we still don’t have equality for women in Britain and we still need a stronger voice for women in our Party too.
