Gillian Keegan, our Director, will be co-chairing the new Fawcett Society Local Government Commission with Margaret Hodge MP. The commission will focus on women's representation at local level, particularly in leadership positions, addressing the the barriers to women's participation and representation. Importantly, the Fawcett Society will be looking at the diversity of women's representation, including the experiences of BME women, disabled women, those with caring responsibilities and different age groups. As we enter an era of devolution, it is critical that women are well represented.
Keep track of whether local government is working for women through Fawcett Society's updates. Women2Win are delighted to support this important project.
