Anne Milton backs #BringBackOurGirls Campaign

Guildford MP, Anne Milton, has joined her fellow female MPs in backing the international #BringBackOurGirls campaign.

The campaign has been launched in response to the devastating kidnap of Nigerian schoolgirls last month and has garnered support from across the globe. Anne and female MPs from all parties came together expressing their support for the campaign by taking part in a photocall on the Parliamentary estate

The photocall follows a joint statement released last week:

‘We as female MPs, stand with women worldwide in condemning in the strongest possible terms the sickening crimes being perpetrated against schoolgirls in northern Nigeria. The brutal treatment of girls seeking an education – a right we take for granted for our daughters – demonstrates the cruelty and immorality of this group.

We welcome the work the Government has done already and support continuing work with the Nigerian authorities and international partners to help bring an end to this heartbreaking situation and reunite these girls with their families as soon as possible.’
