Ece, Pidgeon and Swinson nominated for Women in Public Life awards

Meral H EceJo Swinson wins "Best use of e-campaigning 2009"Caroline PidgeonEvery year, Women in Public Life hold awards to celebrate female leaders across politics, journalism and business. As Dame Kelly Holmes puts it on their website:

Women are under represented in business, the arts and politics. These awards help to highlight and reward the achievements of women and encourage others to pursue leadership roles and to strive for greater representation. I encourage all to nominate and get involved

This year’s shortlists have just been announced and there are three Lib Dem nominees. They are:

Peer of the Year: Baroness Meral Hussein-Ece

Devolved Parliament/Assembly Member: Caroline Pidgeon AM

MP of the Year: Jo Swinson MP

The Awards ceremony will take place in March. Previous Liberal Democrat winners include Annette Brooke, Kirsty Williams and Shirley Williams. Our own Mary Reid is a former nominee for the Local Government category. Good luck to our trio of nominees for this year.

    Jo, save the Equality Act, 2010 from being watered down, and get equalities explicitly back at the core of our Governemnt agenda with measurable outcomes, and you will have my support for being awarded a ‘lifetime’ achievement award.
