Press Release: Kate Osamor MP appointed junior Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities.

Kate Osamor MP has been appointed to the Labour Front Bench and will take up the position of junior Shadow Minister for Women & Equalities. 
 
Kate Osamor MP was newly elected in May 2015 and has consistently used her voice as an MP to speak out for the most vulnerable in society; using her speeches in debates to highlight the impact policies will have on BME communities and working-class women. She has been actively involved in campaigning against Yarl’s Wood Immigration Detention Centre: she visited the centre in November 2015 and led a debate on healthcare in Yarl’s Wood at the beginning of this month. 
 
She will join Shadow Women & Equalities spokesperson Kate Green MP, Cat Smith MP and Baroness Morgan. 
 
Speaking on the subject, Kate says: 
 
“I was delighted to accept this position. Since I joined the House of Commons, I have been seeking to highlight in the Chamber the disproportionate effect many government policies have had on BME communities and working-class women. 
 
I am looking forward to adding my voice to a strong team and working together to hold the government to account on equality issues.”
 
The women and equalities team stated:
 
The women and equalities team are very pleased to welcome new junior Shadow Minister Kate Osamor MP. Women and Equalities is a priority for this Labour administration and we are delighted to have the extra capacity in the team to take forward the equalities agenda.”
