Party Leader Sophie Walker says  “The new parties understand that the electorate are tired of combative, tribal politics. Along with the Green Party, who have endorsed my campaign in Shipley, and the Liberal Democrats who are forging strategic alliances in key seats across the UK.”

“WE  [i.e the Women’s Equality Party] are part of a new political landscape that will deliver a shot in the arm to our country by working collaboratively and sharing ideas.”

She added: “We know we are outsiders, but in spite of the huge disadvantages of our first-past-the-post system, and the vast expense of campaigning, the Women’s Equality Party is set to make its mark on this election.”

    But who’s going to do the ironing if she gets elected?

  4. Ann Other says:

    With whom do they wish to be equal? Other women? Men? All other people? All other well-off people? The poor and needy?

  5. Papa Lazarou says:

    Nor sure I understand what they want to be equal with..and why they feel unequal at the moment

  6. Insulting to the many organisations who have worked so hard for equality. There are women at the top of numerous organisations. No glass ceilings any more. Out of touch… out of date… not long until it will be time for male equality!!

    Don’t trust people who take selfies.
