International Women's Day 2023

"As we celebrate International Women’s Day 2023, London boroughs continue in our dedication to achieving equality and equity for all women in London.

"As cross-party local leaders, we are proud to be leading the way in closing the gender gap and stamping out discrimination.

"Unfortunately, there is still disparity and bias in our society that remain a significant barrier to women achieving their full potential, which is why this years IWD theme of embracing equity is so important.

"There is significant work still to do to break down these barriers and to increase female representation in leadership positions. Boroughs are committed to working with our communities to drive the change we all want to see for our women and girls.”
