SIM Ep 725 Chops 248: 50:50 Parliament with Frances Scott

Frances Scott is the woman behind 50:50 Parliament, a brilliant campaign working with all the UK’s political parties to help women progress in politics in order to build a better democracy. We can all agree it needs to be better, right? Right. She talks to our Mick about how it all started, why it’s so damn important to have women’s voices in Parliament, and how we can all help make it happen. 

Please, please bear all of this – and indeed a lot of the drums we bang on Standard Issue – in mind when you head to the ballot boxes on Thursday 5 May to vote for councillors if you’re in England, Wales or Scotland or if you’re in Northern Ireland, your government.
