There is a real buzz this Labour Party Conference about women in the Party. There’s a great and exciting agenda of women’s events, which kicked off today as over 700 women gathered in Manchester Town Hall for Labour’s Women’s Summit.
You can watch a short video of the event here:
This morning was incredibly inspriring, and shows just why Labour must reinstate Labour Women’s Conference. Dozens of women queued at open mikes to make their views heard, and Yvette and Harriet made rousing speeches. Both the politicians and the delegates showed just how talented Labour women are.
Finally, we were joined by new leader Ed Miliband, who did us proud by making the case loud and clear for positive action for women’s representation in the Party.
The Lead for Women sisters are looking forward to the next Women’s Summit!
