Here’s the letter I wrote to the Camden New Journal –

I was honoured to be invited to speak at the International Women’s Day event organised by the Bengali Workers’ Association and partners last week. I spoke about the importance of engaging more Asian women in politics and the need to vote at the upcoming European elections so that the BNP are prevented from making electoral gains.

In addition to fun activities like Henna painting, the event highlighted the important support that the organisation Hopscotch offers to Asian women in our borough by providing education, training and life skills.
