On International Women’s Day, Denton and Reddish MP Andrew Gwynne is backing the Stop Telling Half the Story campaign for more women in leadership.
This year, #March4Women is demanding more women to lead us through the Covid-19 and climate crises. The Stop Telling Half the Story campaign sends a clear message that we need to acknowledge women’s contributions and have more women in leadership.
The campaign is calling for:
- UK Aid for women’s leadership and rights, including support for women’s rights organisations responding to crises
- Diverse women’s leadership and priorities to shape the G7 agenda on recovery from COVID-19
- Gender justice and women’s leadership to be central to the COP26 agenda.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“The best decisions are made when the group making those decisions reflects the wider population, but unfortunately women remain under-represented in leadership both nationally and globally.
“The pandemic has had an uneven impact on communities and it’s important that our recovery from this crisis addresses this.
“This is why this campaign is so important. We have come a long way, but we have still have so much further to go.”
