Baroness Warsi - University of Leicester, 21 June 2018

Baroness Warsi

Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, the first British Muslim woman to attend Parliament, spoke to a large and diverse audience at a DICE Public Event held on the 21st June at the University of Leicester. Many of the audience were members of the public on their first visit to the University, including a high number of Muslim women. At a time when the Muslim Council of Britain have written a second letter to the Chair of the Conservative Party asking for an inquiry into Islamophobia in the party (having received no formal response to their first), Baroness Warsi urged members of the audience to engage more directly in politics, remarking: ‘If not you, then who? If not now, then when?’ The audience was clearly enthused – early feedback showed that 83% of respondents rated this latest DICE event as ‘excellent.’
