I work very hard as a self employed saxophonist. I decided to become self-employed when I was made redundant in 2011 from my job of 17 years. After years of being 'pigeon hold' as a 'struggling single mother' with no hope for the future, in the face of adversity I have single handedly set up a successful business, the product of which is my ability to play 3 different saxophones...all in which I am self-taught. I set up my business whilst completing a part-time BA (Hons.) degree and two gcse's in order to go onto train to be a secondary school teacher; all of which was done under the day-to-day pressures of being a single mother. I am proud to be a women, to have achieved the above things and to know that I have generated income...that I have become a BUSINESS WOMAN! To now be told that a male minister is going out of his way to remove the only face of a women from English bank notes...(for what reason?) I find extremely insulting!

I'm proud to say my MP is Stella Creasy. Thankfully I don't read the Telegraph.

If you feel like you need to change bank notes (for what ever reason) why not Marie Curie!?

Seriously, this is not a big issue for me. I care little what is on the banknote so long as it affords me its face value, but in fairness, women have many years worth of facetime to make up, so I am happy to support 100 years of all women's faces on banknotes, but at least a fair share.

As long as women are invisible in all their achievements man will continue to claim that women do not have an equal place in society. This has become noticeably worse in the last ten years and unless all those who believe in true equality for women stand up and are counted then it will only get worse. Thank you for all your efforts in this.
