A woman’s place is in Europe

Labour Party

Last Friday I spoke at the European Parliament’s offices in London about International Women’s Day. My thanks to Paola Buonadonna for all her work in putting the event “A Woman’s Place is in Europe” together. Our moderator was the BBC’s Europe expert Shirin Wheeler, and I sat on the left with Emma Reynolds MP Shadow Europe Minister. On the right at the event, and politically were Marina Yannakoudakis Conservative MEP for London and Heather McGregor businesswoman and Financial Times “Mrs. Moneypenny” columnist.

We ran out of time with all the questions and contributions from the floor. I attach two videos. The first is an introduction by Shirin Wheeler, and the second is my speech for those who were unable to attend on the day.
