Twitter Web App : This is absolutely damning. The govt must reinstate financial support for these people seeking asylum. Buying nappies and formula for your baby isn't a luxury.

Twitter Web App : It is women and children - particularly in the most deprived areas - who will pay the price for the govt's failure to support #childcare providers, which are absolutely essential for parents to go to work. Childcare is an investment, not an expense.

Twitter Web App : It's reassuring to see an increased awareness and reporting of domestic abuse from neighbours, but we have also seen rising domestic abuse during #lockdown and survivors need support as lockdown eases.

Twitter Web App : A thread on schools...
From September, children will be back in school:
- in bubbles
- Facing the front
- Teacher 2m away
A one-size fits all school that will automatically exclude many children, especially the ones with SEN. Without their EHCP or support in school,

Twitter Web App : Dr Clare Wenham and Deborah Haynes brilliantly handled the clash of work and childcare today. But the reality for women trying to juggle both and the government's total lack of action on #childcare paints a bleaker picture of the future than a funny video. theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2…

Twitter Web App : The #ImmigrationBill undervalues care & has an income threshold the average care worker simply cannot meet. Care is skilled work and there are 120,000 vacancies. This bill is a far cry from the applause for these key workers MPs took part in for weeks.

Twitter Web App : The govt's failings on #care throughout the pandemic and in its recovery plans means economic recovery from #Covid will be built on the unpaid labour of women. Covid has demonstrated that care matters, Boris Johnson #StayAlert isn't listening.

Twitter Web App : We owe survivors more than a semblance of justice here too. Rape prosecution and conviction rates are at their lowest in a decade in England and Wales. WE are calling for an end to end review of the criminal justice system to ensure rapists like #Weinstein see justice. #MeToo

Twitter Web App : Thank you to the survivors who spoke out against convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein and to everyone who fought for this. But survivors deserve more than a semblance of justice. He won't have to admit any wrongdoing as part of this deal. #MeToo

Twitter Web App : The pandemic has highlighted period poverty, which has risen during lockdown. "You've got a situation where something that was starting to be recognised, gradually kind of being under control, has now taken several steps back," Mandu Reid ...I can’t breathe.

iPhone : This is really significant and an important step forward for the huge number of families who have experienced unimaginable pain and suffering. The NHS must learn from this as a whole, beyond the individual trust independent.co.uk/news/health/sh…

iPhone : This is amazing. We can call this a victory. All of you who supported and cheered us along on this can feel rightly proud of this.

The Government propose clear law to end the use of rough sex defences.

iPhone : Individual experience shapes our beliefs. However, abortion is a healthcare right. No woman should be forced to carry a pregnancy against their will. If, as a politician, your individual experience prevents you from voting in favour of decriminalisation, consider not voting.

iPhone : "Investing in social infrastructure, investing in social infrastructure, investing in social infrastructure" wasn't snappy enough, I suppose. But "care, care, care" might have worked... Too much to hope for from this govt. Womens Equality Party twitter.com/BBCPolitics/st…

iPhone : Boris Johnson’s answer to economic crisis caused by pandemic is to ‘build, build, build’. But our analysis shows our focus needs to be on ‘care, care, care’. Investment in care would also be good for the economy wbg.org.uk/media/press-re… #borisjohnsonspeech
