LONDON, April 28 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – The new leader of Britain’s Women’s Equality Party agrees with her political opponents on one thing – she wishes her party did not exist.
It may be 100 years since women won the right to vote, but Mandu Reid says the battle for equality is far from won.
“I wish we didn’t need (our party), but none of the other parties are nearly ambitious enough when it comes to gender equality. It has been a blind spot in British politics,” [J4MB emphasis] she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
Reid, the first black person to lead a political party in Britain, took over this month from inaugural leader Sophie Walker who quit saying she wanted to make room for more diverse voices.
