I'm on the team behind the 5050 Parliament campaign, currently at 52k signatures.
5050 Parliament's vision is a gender representative parliament where men & women legislate the laws of our land, together, in roughly equal numbers. Of the 650 seats in the House of Commons men hold 459 (71%) and women only 191 (29%). There have only ever been 450 women MPs, and precisely no openly non-binary or trans MPs.
I spoke for 50:50 on the 2017 Women's March London, to the 80,000 strong crowd in Trafalgar Square, and on the March4Women in 2018 alongside Sandi Toksvig, Maria Miller, Bianca Jagger, Dawn Butler MP, Sadiq Khan and Helen Pankhurst.
I've also been a campaigner on issues including race, domestic violence, detention, electoral reform, the climate, Trump & austerity. I believe you have to make your voice heard, stand up & be counted.
