Ask what our mayoral candidates will do to improve the lives of women at our debate.

The London mayoral election is coming up in May, and WOW – Women of the World wants to know how the main candidates will work to help women thrive and prosper in London.

Join us as the main candidates battle it out on topics including the cost of childcare, safety on public transport, the gender pay gap, the NHS, women’s health and the increasing cuts to schools and social care.

Speakers include Conservative candidate Shaun Bailey, Liberal Democrat candidate Siobhan Benita, Green Party candidate Siân Berry, Women’s Equality Party candidate Sue Black, Labour candidate and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, and Independent candidate Rory Stewart.
