UNISON general secretary Christina McAnea is one of this year’s 100 Women in Westminster.
Women in Westminster: The 100 celebrates the achievements and the valuable role women play in public life by recognising one hundred women from across the world of Westminster, who are not only influential in their own field, but who possess the talent and platform to inspire the next generation to make a difference in Westminster and beyond.
Ms McAnea attended a reception in parliament last night to celebrate the event. Commenting on her listing, Ms McAnea said:
“It’s incredibly humbling to be part of this list of influential and formidable women.
“It makes me think of the hundreds of women who have supported and inspired me throughout my journey in the trade union movement.
“I hope I can also inspire more women to get to the top of their professions, and to take up more roles in politics and public life. It’s hard work, but by recognising each other’s achievements, women become an even bigger force to be reckoned with.”
The list includes not only a special tribute to Baroness Boothroyd and three of Westminster’s leading political journalists – Noa Hoffman, Ione Wells, and Pippa Crerar whose scoops on “Partygate” and Chris Pincher are attributed with having a central role in Boris Johnson’s resignation.
The list is compiled by The House magazine. Patrons Laura Kuenssberg, Baroness Jenkin of Kennington, Caroline Nokes MP, Dame Meg Hillier MP, Emily Wallace, Fiona Ryland, Rosa Prince, and Anne Alexander decided on the final 100 women, including parliamentarians, civil servants, journalists, public affairs specialists, political commentators and more.
