I was only the 426th woman elected to the House of Commons in nearly 223 years, when you first elected me in 2015.
How long will it be before we have a Parliament with equal representation of women and men? I’m very proud that we have more Labour women MPs than men, but we need a Parliament with 50:50 representation.
I’m asking for more women to join me. If you know someone who’d make a great representative, as a Councillor, Senedd Member or Member of Parliament, please ask her to stand.
