"I looked around and saw younger women still enduring harassment and discrimination, still excluded and marginalised, by an industry that could challenge stereotypes and far more often reinforces them instead. At the same time, I watched mainstream political parties paying lip service to the value of gender equality while failing to deliver it in their own ranks much less more widely. And so I co-founded the Women’s Equality Party."
