Nimco Ali & Catherine Mayer
Women on the March

JESS PHILLIPS IS NO LONGER ATTENDING THIS EVENT. SHE WILL BE REPLACED BY NIMCO ALI.

Two women who make no apology for shouting long and loud about gender inequality. Catherine Mayer is co-founder of the Women’s Equality Party and Jess Phillips is Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley and chair of the Women’s Parliamentary Party. Together they discuss gender inequality in the aftermath of the largest single day march in history. This couldn’t be a more timely conversation.

Chaired by Helen Lewis, Deputy Editor, New Statesman

Catherine Mayer was born in the US and has spent much of her life in London. She is a former Europe Editor and editor at large of TIME magazine and the author of Amortality: The Pleasures and Perils of Living Agelessly and the Sunday Times bestselling biography of Prince Charles Charles: The Heart of a King. In 2015 she co-founded the Women’s Equality Party with Sandi Toksvig.

Nimco Ali is a Somali activist and co-founder and Director of the Daughters of Eve, a non-profit organisation that works to advance and protect the physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health rights of  young people from female genital mutilation practising communities.
