What are your plans for women and children?
This General Election, ask your candidates what their plans are for women and children.
We know that women, children and young people have been disproportionately impacted on by recent changes to public spending. What happens at Westminster hugely affects us all. We'd like your support in asking candidates how they will protect and support women and children from discrimination, poverty and harm.
Ask your candidates:
- What are your plans to protect vital specialist services for women, children and young people experiencing domestic abuse, rape, FGM, so called honour violence and forced marriage?
- What are your plans to tackle sexist media imagery of women?
- What are your plans to support the fair representation of women in politics, business, economics?
- What are your plans in regards to a living wage?
- What are your plans for taking gender into consideration when making economic decisions?
- What are your plans for ensuring reproductive rights for women are secure?
- What are your plans to tackle child poverty?
- What are your plans in regards to women and children who face multiple discrimination, such as disabled and refugee women and children who have been affected by changes to the welfare system?
- What are your plans around high child care costs?
- What are your plans in regards to supporting asylum seeking women in order to reduce destitution, poverty and isolation?
- What are your plans in regards to relieving poverty experienced by older women?
Let us know what you hear back!
