What About Women?

the Fawcett Society has invited the leading mayoral campaigns to debate what they will do for London’s women.

In the run up to the London mayoral elections, the Fawcett Society has invited the leading mayoral campaigns to debate what they will do for London’s four million women.

The Mayor of London is the UK’s most powerful directly elected politician, managing a budget of £14.6 billion. The way these resources are used could make a huge difference. The Mayor can affect planning, transport, policing and a number of other services in ways that have an impact on equality between women and men.

This event will allow the audience to hear from the leading campaigns and ask: What About Women?
