The wisdom of the women who are involved in local government needs to be shared. Without it, Labour in power locally and nationally will not be as effective in achieving greater equality, prosperity and better outcomes for the communities we serve.

In the year we celebrate a hundred years since some women won the right to vote, the role of elected women in local government is more vital than ever. Women are under-represented in local government, especially in leadership roles, yet councils make important decisions that affect women at work and at home. Women also make up a large proportion of the local government workforce too - often bearing the brunt of austerity as services are under greater pressure and cuts.

The Young Fabians are proud to host a discussion led by labour women in local government with: Cllr Claire Kober, Leader of Haringey Council, Cllr Sarah Hayward, Former Leader of Camden Council, Cllr Clare Coghill, Leader of Waltham Forest, and Cllr Abena Oppong-Asare, Councillor in Bexley with the event chaired by Charlotte Norton, Young Fabian Executive Member, Editor of Anticipations and a council candidate in Shadwell Ward (Tower Hamlets)
