its been well reported they banned white men from attending a conference but labour have never elected a female leader, would that not be a better way to achieve equality. for context the conservatives did in 1975 43 years ago a female leader of the 2 main parties has never lost an general election so the electorate can not be sexist and 4 of the last ten general elections have been won by a women. tldr aibu to think the person that did about the same as Gordon brown did when he resigned in 2010. has history against him the last labour leader to lose a first election then win the next was Attlee who of course had been in the cabinet during the war (first ever dpm) should of resigned/ be forced out and to mark 100 years of the suffragette movement labour should elect their first female leader.
I think they probably know that the electorate would never go for a female Labour leader.
A female conservative is forgiven because they're not rocking the boat too much and would never call themselves a feminist. But a left wing feminist, boy, that's a bit to'o much!' err may called her self a feminist goo.gl/images/FSZnkw and its not the electorate is the labour members.
Because the Labour Party is the most traditionally minded, misogynistic organisation in this country. The Tories, ironically, are far quicker to embrace social change than Labour ever has been. Roy Jenkins was the last truly socially radical Labour Cabinet Minister (Frank Field tried but Blair wouldn't have it) and he ended up leaving the party.
read my post a specifically said elected never had a female leader elected never had a female leader fight a ge 'But they didn’t ban white men from a conference? It was an event for people interested in being elected as officers in certain positions - including women, BME etc.' not it wasnt it was titled ' young labour equalities conference and it wasnt about people being interested it was where they elected the four officers to the posts
The Labour party have always been a group of ideological misogynists that have attracted a certain group of women who are incapable of seeing that ideology always creates a worse outcome than practicality. The Conservatives are much better at seeing what works rather then what they want to work.
I know there only a branch office but Scottish Labour have had at least two female leaders and one is openly gay. Unfortunately, SLAB (Scottish Labour) are even more of a basket case than the Westminster lot.
