On the 12th March Rachel and female Leeds West Labour Party Members attended an International Women’s Day Charity Dinner held by Linda McAvan MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber, with guest speaker Baroness Glenys Kinnock.

Linda holds the dinner every two years to raise money for this great cause and this dinner saw over 200 women from across the region gather to raise money to support the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, which treats young girls who suffer debilitating injuries during childbirth that can affect them throughout their lives.

The dinner is held to show how far women have come, but also how far we still have to go for women in the developing world. The Millennium Development goals agreed at Gleneagles are making a difference to people in Africa but there is more governments ? at home and abroad must do to help people get an education and access to health care.
