Interview by Ozan Adan
Baroness Warsi has successfully become the first ever female Muslim member of the cabinet. Her role in the cabinet and as Co-Chairman of the Conservative party is significant, not just as an advocate for women but also, for the Muslim community.
Baroness Warsi balances her many roles as a mother, wife, party Co-Chair whilst maintaining her influencial position within British politics. Her position and her roots gives her a unique advantage in understanding the current multi-ethnic spectrum of Britain today. The Baroness holds a vast amount of responsiblity on the socio-political front, and has risen to the challenge admirably by facing extremists on both sides of the multi-culturalism issues. Her defence of a tolerant society embracing differences in race, religion and culture has caused some stir within her own Muslim community as well as others who oppose and even confront her.
