How Does Labour Conference Still Have An All-Male Panel Problem?

Transport hasn’t been too diverse either: Sunday’s Action for Rail event had five male speakers to one female. Business receptions have been overwhelmingly male too.

And Monday actually had three all-male fringes running at the same time: an IPPR event – “Where Next For Britain And Europe” – stocked with six male panellists; a Policy Exchange one on “Smart Power”, with three; and a TUC discussion on devolution, with four. (The devolution one also had a female chair, but everyone knows this is a cop out).

This happens every year.
