Anneliese Dodds – 2021 Comments on Women and Equalities Appointment

The comments made by Anneliese Dodds, the new Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, on 21 September 2021.

I’m delighted to accept the position of Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities and look forward to maintaining Labour’s proud record of promoting equality.

I want to pay tribute to Marsha de Cordova and Charlotte Nichols for the fantastic work they did for those facing discrimination and prejudice, and to hold Liz Truss and the Conservative Government to account for their appalling failures.

Labour is the party of equality – and only Labour in government can deliver a fairer, more equal future for the British people.
