Why is gender inequality so stubbornly persistent? Power remains concentrated in the hands of men right across the worlds of business, politics and culture. Equal Power holds a mirror up to society, showing the extent of gender inequality while making the case that everyone has the power to create change. In this inspiring and essential book, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson outlines the steps we can take, small and large, to make our society truly equal.
Jo Swinson was Minister in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), and Minister for Women, from 2012 to 2015, where her responsibilities included labour market policy, women on boards and corporate governance. Elected at the age of 25, Jo was the youngest MP in Parliament, and currently serves her home area of East Dunbartonshire as MP. She founded Equal Power Consulting, which worked to change organisations so that both women and men can thrive.
