Pandemics do discriminate - with Ruth Lister | Ep.4
Show Notes

If this crisis reveals anything, it's the structural depths of inequality that scar our country and the lives of millions of people. Yes, COVID-19 impacts on everyone – but it impacts us differently. 

This week, our feature guest is Ruth Lister. Ruth has put the fight against inequality at the heart of her political life, from running the Child Poverty Action Group to campaigning for asylum and refugee rights.
 
From her seat in the House of Lords we hear Ruth's take on the present crisis, the state of Labour and our hopes of building a fairer society in the wake of this pandemic.
