Systematic Misogyny Displayed by Some Muslim Male Labour Councillors
Muslim women tell Newsnight reporter Katie Razzall how they are systematically 'stopped' from becoming Labour councillors. Click here for full article.
We have today emailed (with a copy in the post) this public letter raising concerns to the leader of the labour Party Jeremy Corbyn MP about how some Muslim male Labour party councillors routinely and systematically marginalise and even silence the voices of Muslim women. We have also written to the Prime Minister to launch a cross party investigation to look at how BME women are marginalised by local male politicians from their communities. This letter can be viewed here.
We are grateful for BBC Newsnight for helping us to highlight this very important issue and hope this will now initiate a wider debate and more women will have the confidence to come forward and share their stories.
