Print Friendly

following the elections on 22nd May. Congratulations to Mary Bateman, the 20th female councillor in the city, and also to Judith Rowley, Jacqui Sweetman, Caroline Siarkiewicz, Christine Mills and Julie Hodgkiss who were all re-elected. A third of Wolverhampton councillors are now women, which is great, but at the rate of 1 additional woman per year, it is going to take a long time to achieve a more equal balance! Women of Wolverhampton wants to see much more rapid change, and to support many more women to participate in local democracy. With the general election coming up in 2015 and many issues affecting women’s lives the subject of local and national decisions we need to ensure women are taking part and being heard.  Our first free event with Clare Mullin from Parliament Outreach Service is on Wednesday 9th July, 9.30am – 12.30pm at Newhampton Arts Centre.  If you are interested in finding out more and getting involved please contact Amanda at WOW [email protected] or 01902 572122.
