There are many women with children under five who want to work and who lack affordable, high-quality child care.
Actually, I don't ever think there will be a men-only team of leadership in the Labour party again. People would look at it and say, 'What? Are there no women in the party to be part of the leadership? Do men want to do it all themselves?' It just won't happen again.
I don't agree with all-male leaderships. Men cannot be left to run things on their own. I think it's a thoroughly bad thing to have a men-only leadership.
In a country where women regard themselves as equal, they are not prepared to see men running the show themselves.
I think a balanced team of men and women makes better decisions. That's one of the reasons why I was prepared to run for deputy leader.
