Labour Councillor for Princes Park for the past 13 years it was a great honour to be made Mayoral Lead for Equality with specific responsibility for Race Equality. This has enabled me to focus on all the amazing women across the city who have made a major contribution to our social fabric.
I have had the pleasure to work with woman from all walks of life and backgrounds delivering much needed services to:
Women fleeing domestic violence, housing for our elders, employment programmes, mental health projects, family focussed wrap around care, health related initiatives and all have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide a complete service that leverages additional services.
It is a great opportunity to celebrate the women of Liverpool on International Women’s Day.
We have new challenges ahead of us but with our collective approach I believe anything is possible. So, to all our sisters out there you are treasured for the amazing things you do not just today but 365 days a year.
