Met with Jennette Arnold on Wednesday and am delighted to announce that Jennette has agreed to be on Rooms of our Own’s Advisory Board; although Jennette says she would prefer it to be known as an Advisory Group.
Jennette was extremely supportive of Women’s Design Service when I was Director there and has already made a number of really useful suggestions about contacts and ways forward for Rooms of our Own.
Jennette has an excellent record on equality issues and is extremely knowledgeable about the boroughs for which she is an AM. Jennette is currently involved with a Women’s Safety campaign, and is also taking action on Gypsy and Traveller pitches. Jennette also made a fabulous speech at Walthamstow’s recent rally against the EDL when many hundreds of us managed to send them packing.
