Data, deeds and determination We move together like a murmuration Look out for the flock And the boats we rock As we gather and group Soar and swoop For women and girls Bomber jacket, boots or twin set and pearls Hair long and straight or short tight curls Women of every age Together on one stage Regardless of race, accent or disability We all have the right to equal care and stability For parity and respect, in every aspect of our lives As friends, colleagues, neighbours, leaders Lovers, partners, sisters, mothers, daughters and wives To be safe, to be heard Yes. Each. And. Every. Word. To participate and represent By more than 34.4% For 103 years and counting Some women have been voting Yet the scores on the doors Leave our ancestors doubting That we will ever achieve True parity between Adam and Eve But we must, and we can Be treated equal to The Man So join us and help us count Help us organise and hold to account To make GM a great place To be a girl, woman and Nan We are GM We are #GM4Women And 2028 will mark the end of our beginning With data, deeds and determination We grow and move together like a murmuration I wrote this for the launch of our GM FawcettPankhurst Scorecard at our annual GM4Women event on 6 Feb 2021, 103 years since some women got the vote. Data, Deeds and Determination was the name of the event. See gm4women2028.org for more information.
