Last quote by Sophie Walker

It takes away the choice about whether and how much women want to work. And when women take up lower-paid part-time roles and men dominate more senior jobs, there is a power imbalance, and that is where harassment thrives because women are being forced into a position of dependency.feedback

Sophie Walker quotes

May 01 2017

These figures not only highlight the growing gap between rich and poor, where the number of higher-rate taxpayers is rising while record numbers rely on handouts from food banks, they also provide evidence for the continuing gender pay gap that we are so often told does not exist.feedback

May 01 2017

The pay gap does exist, and at every level of business, because no other political party has made it a priority to fix it. We understand that the pay gap will only be eliminated by tackling an unequal education system, lack of shared parenting, unaffordable childcare and a shortage of flexible working.feedback

Apr 23 2017 - Homosexuality

Philip Davies basically is a sexist misogynist who puts his own ego ahead of his constituents. His anti-equality agenda in Westminster threatens the rights and freedoms not just of women but also people with disabilities, BAME (black, Asian, and minority ethnic) and LGBT+ communities. I think that Shipley deserves an MP who will prioritise representing them and the issues that are important to their constituency, rather than using parliament as a stage to play out attention-seeking performances.feedback

Mar 11 2017 - Sexism

I am a pro-choice, pro-quotas, end-demand, end-violence against women and girls feminist. And I'm not seeking male approval. Proud to march today.feedback

Mar 11 2017 - Sexism

Far from being in a 'propitious' position, any analysis of senior leadership roles in business will show the woeful under-representation of women and minority groups. Women, and especially BME women, are a long way from endangering men's dominance of boardrooms. We are seeing a resurgence of feminist protest and activism against the kind of attitudes Allan betrays with these comments. With him at the helm, Tesco not only risks missing out on female talent - it will also alienate customers. I plan on doing my shopping elsewhere this weekend.feedback

Mar 11 2017

We find Mr Allan's comments extraordinary … Women are responsible for the majority of grocery purchases in the UK. As consumers we are a powerful force and can exercise our freedom to shop elsewhere to support women and locally owned businesses. Tesco needs to urgently restructure its boards.feedback

Jan 21 2017 - Xenophobia

We are here to march to protest the hate and the division that Donald Trump puts forward as politics. We are here to march against the rising xenophobia in this country too. We are here to march against the normalisation of racism and misogyny and sexism.feedback
