On International Women’s Day, we celebrated women’s achievements in our communities and across the UK, whilst acknowledging there is so much more to do.

I am proud that Labour is committed, as the party of equality, to transforming women’s working lives, improving health outcomes, and tackling violence against women and girls.

I joined my colleagues Angela Rayner and Anneliese Dodds in support of our plans to require large firms to introduce menopause action plans to support women at work.

To mark International Women’s Day, the International Rescue Committee also launched their report which puts women and girls at the heart of development.

I was pleased to join them in Parliament and stand with women leading in crises around the world.
