§ Marjorie Mowlam
The Government are putting in place a number of important policies, such as action on violence against women, childcare provision and family friendly employment.
Furthermore, our commitment to equality for everyone in society is a key part of the Good Friday Agreement.
I would also like to see more women from Northern Ireland in public life generally—in the Assembly and in this House.
