Here are some of the statistics UK Feminista are hoping the candidates will address-
- Women in London are paid 22.4% less than men.
- Compared to the rest of the country, London has the lowest percentage of successful outcomes for violence against women offences: only 58 percent of cases are successful.
- Female MPs are outnumbered 4:1 in Parliament.
- Approximately 100,000 women are raped each year, and just 6% of reported rapes end in a conviction.
I am slightly disappointed they haven’t gone down the Kardashian route (I really cannot explain why I know about these people, osmosis maybe) and named the challenge Kontact Ken. I think it’s catchy.
