Rowenna Davis is one of the Prospective Parliamentary Candidates (PPCs) profiled in the new Young Fabians pamphlet 'Fifteen for 2015'. You can read the pamphlet here.
If you can say one thing about Rowenna Davis it’s that she’s not afraid to ruffle a few feathers. More than a decade before her rise to political prominence as the author of ‘Tangled Up In Blue’, Labour’s candidate for Southampton Itchen caused a stir by organising a new school ‘tuck shop’ to rival the much-maligned school dinners. Told by staff at her inner-London comprehensive she had “no hope” of influencing Serco due to its 15 year contract to provide the service, a 14-year-old Rowenna stood firm. Two weeks later Serco gave in, introducing a new menu with vegetarian options. Multi-national corporation 0. Community organising 1.
