Women in Public Life Awards

I was just informed that I have been shortlisted for the Journalist of the Year Award at the Dods Women in Public Life Awards. I’m really surprised (especially to be called a journalist!). Nonetheless I am delighted, particularly given some of the other women shortlisted like our young hero Malala Yousefzai who has been shortlisted for the International Women’s Rights Champion Award.

To see the shortlist for all awards, click here.

By the way, you can vote for a People’s Choice Award. I would suggest that you vote for our Malala; I just did. Get your vote for her in now. [UPDATE: It seems only parliamentarians can vote for the people's choice awards.]

    Congratulations Maryam … oh no, you’re up against Clare Balding!!! Malala must be a shoo-in for the People’s Choice … she is a little star, someone who restores my faith in humanity.

      Not only am I up against Clare Balding but no one in the mainstream British media will publish my writings – some ‘journalist’ I am!

    Voting on the People’s Choice Award is only open to Parliamentarians.

      Oh yes I just realised that too. Since when did they become ‘the people’…
