Women's Equality Party Liverpool Metro Mayor candidate presents ₤23 billion cheque to the North West economy

INTERNATIONAL Women's Day, the Women's Equality Party candidate for Liverpool Metro Mayor will present a big cheque for ₤23.7 billion to 'North West Economy.'  Tabitha Morton, who was announced as the party's candidate last month and is the only woman in the mayoral race, said the cheque represented the amount that could be added to the region's economy annually if women were able to work the hours they wanted to, at the same rate of pay as men.  The gender pay gap means that women in the North West earn ₤23.7 billion less than men, which is not only unfair, it also a huge lost opportunity. Tackling the causes of the gender pay gap; including affordable childcare, flexible working and equal education opportunities for boys and girls; will not only provide a vital economic boost, it will also make life easier for families across the Liverpool City Region.  Morton's campaign is focused on gender equality in business, culture and family life. "The Northern Powerhouse project was set up to boost economic growth in the north of England," she said. "It is a project that cannot succeed if it fails to harness the talents of half its population. Because of this, we all lose out. Liverpool's business leaders and innovators understand that gender equality is not a 'women's issue,' but a business imperative, and understand that diversity in the workplace boosts productivity. Allowing women to achieve their full economic potential would add $28 trillion to global GDP and an extra 10% to the UK economy by 2030. I will campaign tirelessly until election day on 4 May to ensure that Liverpool City Region puts women at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, and starts to make the most of their talents for the benefit of all in the North West."
