UK: First minister of Wales seeks to create "feminist government"

Article here. Excerpt:

The Welsh Government has commissioned research to see what it needs to do to become a "feminist government".

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, Mr Jones said he wants to shape the direction of the government beyond the end of his term in December.

The first minister announced his intention to step down at Welsh Labour conference in April.

Mr Jones told the programme: "The very fact that a woman says 'I'm proud to be a woman and a feminist', the very fact that's seen as radical rather than normal - which it should be - shows how far we've got to go.

"We've said we want to be a truly feminist government - we now have to live up to that."

The first minister said the Welsh Government had commissioned research from Cardiff University "to give us an idea of what that needs to look like".'
