Following the relaunch of the government's womens unit, Conservative womens' spokesman Theresa May said:

'This initiative is a fine example of the powerlessness and lack of imagination in dealing with real womens issues that we have come to expect from this government's womens unit.

'Today's show-event raises just one question: if the womens unit has been as successful as Baroness Jay claims, why is it then necessary to relaunch it in the first place?

'Why do the government think they know who young girls should look to for a role model? What makes Susie Orbach a better role model for young girls than their own mothers or grandmothers?

'These sort of froth and bubble initiatives from the Islington tendency are the last thing young girls in this country need.'
