Labour leadership candidate reveals proposal as she announces five-point women’s equality plan, pledging to keep using the “f-word” – feminism

The shadow home secretary and leadership candidate also wants all teenagers to be taught about the dangers of “revenge porn” while in school.

Currently sex education is only compulsory for children aged 11 and above, meaning Ms Cooper’s plan would drop the age limit by four years.

A source close to Ms Cooper said teaching for those in primary schools would be “age appropriate” and focus on relationship issues.

It will form part of Ms Cooper five-point women’s equality plan. The other proposals included will be a new Equalities Act, a protest-free buffer zones around abortion clinics, free universal childcare for children aged two to four and a “proper” Living Wage.

Ms Cooper will say: “David Cameron won’t use the f-word. I will. I always have. I’m proud to be feminist. And I want Labour to be championing women’s equality again for the future.”

“And for me, feminism is about equality for all. It’s not about expecting women to change and live men’s lives. Nor is it about excluding men, or dividing women from each other. My feminism will

always be inclusive, positive, and about all of us not just some.”

“It’s about changing our economy and society completely, so that both women and men have greater equality, greater opportunity and greater freedom. Putting family at the heart of our economy too – something we’ve never done before.”
