Letter to MPs Regarding Changing the Name of the Women and Equalities Committee to, simply, the Equalities Committee.

This is a template for a letter I, and friends at Ladies for Philip Davies, are busy sending out to all MPs in the Commons.

The automated responses we’re receiving suggest that it will make all the difference if this comes from their own constituents, so please copy and paste this (or write your own email) and send it to your MP. Don’t forget to include your full postal address. Find your MP and their email address here: http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/


Dear X,

I am writing regarding the Rt Hon Philip Davies’ proposal to change the name of the Women and Equalities Committee to simply ‘The Equalities Committee’.

The statistics and the real world make it clear that women are not a uniquely disadvantaged demographic. Men are facing serious issues that the select committee needs to work on too. He was correct when he said “You can still look at women’s issues on a committee that’s just called Equalities”- but the present name is explicitly exclusionary of men’s issues.

Not only is Davies’ name change proposal morally right however, but as evidenced by the poll conducted by The Metro (here: http://metro.co.uk/2016/12/14/tory-mp-wants-women-removed-from-women-and-equalities-committee-title-6323247/ and also pictured, as of the 7th March 2017) it appears to be overwhelmingly supported by the public.

I therefore ask you to support Davies in this campaign.

Yours sincerely,

Elizabeth Hobson
on behalf of Ladies for Philip Davies
