Conference 2019: Lib Dems lead fight for gender equality

Today, at party conference, Liberal Democrats passed a Gender Equality motion moved by Equalities Spokesperson, Christine Jardine MP.

Ms Jardine said: “I have been overwhelmed at the support across the country for our attempts to tackle the everyday prejudice and discrimination which women and girls across the UK face.

“While this Conservative Government has done woefully little to address this inequality the Liberal Democrats have brought forward progressive legislation on issues including ‘upskirting’ and the ‘pink tax’.

“Our daughters and sons deserve equal support on all social and economic areas and by passing this policy at Conference we are making it clear that we will be bold and ambitious in outlawing gender inequality.

“This motion is a key step towards addressing the huge injustices that persist for women and girls across the UK, from the price gap to period poverty.”
