As a former Labour minister and long-time campaigner for women’s equality, I would like to give my support to Harriet Harman’s call for a 50:50 split of women and men in the Shadow Cabinet.
I recently attended the launch of "Your voice. Your choice" , a campaign to highlight women in the Labour Party.

I am delighted to announce that my commitment to equality has been recognised by Stonewall, the largest gay, lesbian and bisexual right charity in Europe.
Today I attended the Afghanistan and Central Asian Association's International Women’s Day Celebration, where I answered a range of questions on everything from my work on climate change and equalities to my experiences in Afghanistan.
