International Women's Day


Most people have lost out under this government — but women have lost out the most. It will never be that way with Ed Miliband as Prime Minister.

If we win, here are just some of the things a Labour government will do to support women:

  • We will force large companies to be transparent about their pay gap. It's a scandal that women are still paid less than men in 2015.
  • We will guarantee 25 hours of free childcare for all three to four year olds, helping mums stay in work if they want to.
  • We're also committed to introducing a Violence Against Women and Girls Bill. Amongst other things, it will ban the police using "community resolutions" for domestic and sexual violence, as far too often these result in just a slap on the wrist for the perpetrator.
  • More than half our candidates in winnable seats are women and, if we're elected, our Cabinet will include the post of Women and Equalities Minister.
