The National Council of Women have announced the winners in their young women Speak Out competition launched across the nation in April this year.

In the 19 to 30 category Chloe Hill was named as winner and wins a trip to New York. Sofia Grebenkina won in the 13 to 18 age group and will visit the House of Lords as her prize.

The competition  was run by the NCW, with support from organisations including the Media Trust, British Federation of Women Graduates, Parliament Week, Hansard Society and Graduate Rescue, the young women Speak Out competition challenged young women in the UK to give their response to the question: ‘If you could influence Government to take action on one issue to improve the lives of women and girls, what would it be?’

Chloe submitted an entry calling for total overhaul of the National Curriculum with a greater emphasis on achievements of women.

Sofia wants more female role models in government and believes young women should be encouraged to aim higher in their career goals.

The NCW will now deliver the powerful ideas of the winners to the government.   ynuk.tv spoke with both winners.
