Please see below for NEC candidate Ellie Reeves' response to our letter on AWS
Many thanks to LWN for asking this important question.
My answer is absolutely yes!
Over the last 8 years that I have served on the NEC I have often been called on to make some quite difficult decisions about women only shortlists. However, in my view we must continue with the policy in order to achieve gender equality within the Parliamentary Labour Party and to change the perception of what makes a 'good MP'.
All the best
