International Women’s Day is an important day to celebrate the achievements of women across the world and to celebrate the progress made in the fight for equality. The theme this year is #BalanceforBetter with the vital aim of building a gender-balanced world.
“I am proud to celebrate women and our achievements on International Women’s Day. However, there is still so much work to be done in the UK and across the world to ensure that women have equality.
“Recently I joined over a thousand women from the UK and around the world at Labour’s Women’s Conference. It was inspiring to see the passion of women who campaign for positive change in our society. It was a reminder of what we can achieve together.”
