The all-male boycott


COUNCIL leader Sarah Hayward says she will no longer go to events with an all-male panel.

This is not a new policy, but she says she will now start ‘calling out’ the organisers with no women in their line-ups. On top of this, she is also calling on Camden’s companies and institutions to think about the make-up of their panels. KPMG was the first to get a tweet stinger.

The context to this is quite interesting because Camden, unlike most local authorities, has women at the head of all the political parties represented at the Town Hall. Sarah’s opponents, however, seemed lukewarm to a boycott policy. Conservative group leader Councillor Claire-Louise Leyland for example said when I checked to see whether the idea would be shared across the groups: “For myself, I generally prefer to work with people, rather than make a dramatic public statement.”

    Hmmm…If she had been on the panel it would not have been all male.

      She means events which she, and the rest of the audience, are invited to listen to an all male panel. She spoke at the London First breakfast mentioned in the CNJ story and linked here, but said she was one of only two women there.

  2. You mean no women still play football for Arsenal after all this time?

    Sarah is fanatical about there all-male skills and goes on about it all the time.

    Hopefully some mixed-doubles next season.
