Independent: Why we need Harriet as Deputy leader


The article featured in the Independent on Thursday 17th May, begins with the words "if you're serious about equality, you have to be serious about feminism" and gives examples of Harriet's strive for equality since she was first elected in 1982.

The article also explains how "Harman's policies aren't only good feminist practice - they are immensely popular in the suburbs of Middle England. In a recent YouGov poll, female swing voters, the "Worcester women" so important to winning, are a remarkable 22 per cent more likely to vote Labour with Harman. She was miles ahead of the nearest contender, Hilary Benn."
