Dr.Ros Altmann is delighted to be a judge for the National Council of Women's 'Giving Young Women and Girls a Voice’ competition, which is currently open for entries. Here she explains what the competition is about: I wanted to let you know about the NCW’s ‘Giving Young Women and Girls a Voice’ competition, for which I am a judge. I am so pleased to have the chance to judge this NCW competition and always delighted to do what I can do to help young women achieve their potential. The competition is open to girls aged 13 to 30 and asks them to answer the question "If you could influence the Government to take action on one issue to improve the lives of women and girls, what would it be?". Entrants must write a proposal and argument, in 300-500 words for the 13-18 year-olds and a maximum of 750 words for those aged 19-30. The closing date is 31st July 2013. I will be very interested to read what the entrants want Government to do, since they are the ones best placed to know what is needed. It is often the case that a competition like this will produce ideas that have not been previously thought of, but can be really successful.
