This article notes that it is 150 years since Millicent Fawcett presented the first suffrage petition to the UK parliament. It is now time for a 5050 parliament!
50:50 Parliament is a contemporary petition asking all the party leaders for solutions to right this wrong. The disparity in the Commons is bad but the House of Lords is even worse: the name says it all. If Parliament is inaccessible to the majority that are women it must be inaccessible to many others. It needs sorting!
