Very excitingly, we heard (from twitter) that we were namechecked today on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour with the marvellous Jenni Murray.
We ‘listened again’ (as you can do here) and heard a great conversation between Jenni and Labour pollster and Lead for Women supporter Deborah Mattinson, and MP Meg Hillier, about what Labour needs to do to lead for women. We were extra pleased to hear Jenni refer to the Lead for Women letter putting pressure on the Labour leadership candidates to tell us how they will change our Party.
This is the blurb from the Woman’s Hour website:
Labour leadership: Who will win for women – Ed, David, Diane, Andy or Ed?
The die is cast on who will become the next leader of the Labour party. The ballot closed at five o’clock on Wednesday with the winner to be revealed at the party’s conference on Saturday. After a general election campaign in which women were near invisible and a leadership election in which just one woman stood, how will the new leader reach out to those who think the party fails to represent them? Jenni is joined by Labour MP Meg Hillier who’s already put her hat in the ring for the shadow cabinet elections and by party pollster Deborah Mattinson.
