I’m now back in Brussels following this year’s Labour Conference.
I also attended Women’s Conference on Saturday where there was a great atmosphere. Delegates made powerful statements about the direction of future policy and the debates in breakout sessions were inspirational. In addition, the Conference gave a moving tribute to Harriet Harman who has done so much for women over more than 30 years.
I had a stand at Women’s Conference where I signed and sold copies of my book, Parliamentary Pioneers. I was also invited to do a book signing at conference on Tuesday at City Books book shop, the official book seller at this year’s Labour conference.
It was another great opportunity to meet many women from a variety of backgrounds, including research fellows, CLP delegates and trade unionists all searching of ways to improve pay, conditions and other rights for women.
