On Tuesday 26th January, Sarah Atherton held a discussion on ‘Women in Westminster, with a local branch of the WI.
The first female MP for Wrexham, and the first female Conservative MP for Wales spoke about her journey into Parliament and shared some of the unique challenges she and her colleagues have faced.
During the discussion, they also touched on how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted local businesses, in particular those who sit on the English-Welsh border.
Commenting on the discussion, Sarah said:
“It was a pleasure to speak to a local branch on the WI. They truly are a group of inspirational women and I very much look forward to meeting them again face to face.
“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help and support of organisations such as W2W and Women’s Equality Network. Wherever possible, I like to share my story and encourage other women to get involved with politics, whether that means becoming a local community councillor or standing for Parliament.”
