Marie Claire Women At The Top Awards
Last night I was proud to have been invited to the Women On Top Awards, hosted by Marie Claire. I was given an award for activism and anti-poverty campaigning, and as I said in a few short words, I was both humbled and slightly bewildered to be counted among such trailblazing and inspiring women.
Women who were given awards included Laura Richards, who founded the Paladin service for victims of stalking and harrasment; Pip Lines, a Major with the Sixth Battalion Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers; Kathryn Parsons, co-founder of Decoded; Dr Alice Bunn, the UK Space Agency’s Director of Policy in the Civil Service; Polly Stenham, playwright; Emma Hopkins, who worked with Angelina Jolie and William Hague on the Preventing Sexual Violence In Conflict campaign, Daniela Cecilio, CEO and founder of the shopping app ASAP54; Shabana Mahmood, one of the first female Muslim MPs; and Jennie Dawson, founder of ethical chutney brand Rubies In The Rubble, repurposing unwanted fruit and vegetables.
