She then moved on to the town hall where she spoke about the need for women to vote in the forthcoming election in light of the fact that 9.1 million did not vote in 2010.

She said: “Its for us to show that we are a team of women and men in the Labour Party and that we are listening to women, understand their lives and know that women are still not paid equally to men that childcare is still unaffordable , that the ‘bedroom tax’ hits twice as many women as men and that women are baring the brunt of austerity.”
