Women and Equalities Minister, United Kingdom
The Right Hon. Penny Mordaunt is the UK Minister for Women and Equalities. Penny becomes the 43rd Champion since the movement launched two years ago. On her appointment as a Champion for SheDecides Penny had the following to say:
“Everyone should have control over their own bodies and their own futures. That means every girl and every woman having access to the information they need, the freedom to choose what’s right for them, and the services and support they need to make their own decisions.
The UK has a strong track record of supporting women’s rights, and I will proudly continue that tradition, so we can continue to empower women and girls everywhere, in the UK and the developing world.”
