Leanne Wood, AM for Rhondda and leader of Plaid Cymru, has been chosen as one of the Women’s Equality Network (WEN) Wales’ most inspiring 100 Welsh Women, for an incredible impact in their field.
Responding to the news, Leanne Wood AM said:“I am thrilled to have been chosen as one of WEN Wales’ 100 Welsh Women.
“I believe that the need for women to be empowered, politicised and organised is greater now than it has ever been. With an increase in widespread attacks on women and minorities, attempts to silence us must be resisted.
“The #MeToo movement has opened a door to a change in culture. We need everyone who wants to see that culture change to respect to future generations to pull together and challenge existing power structures.
"I call on all women to get involved and get active. Collectively we can make a big difference.”
