The Mayor's commitment

The Mayor launches the #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign with students from Platanos College in south London

If we’re going to make gender equality a reality in our city, that means making some big commitments to ourselves and to each other.

Here is the Mayor of London’s:

Over the next year, and beyond, I commit to redoubling my efforts to fight for gender equality. And I will be encouraging Londoners to celebrate the women of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and backgrounds that make London the greatest city in the world.
