Women in The House of Commons
Women in the House of Commons is a relatively new concept. 100 years ago there were no women at all. Today a quarter of MP’s in the House of Commons are women. The House of Lords has about a fifth of its membership as women.

The Exhibition is under way. We are having a wonderful response. Still open until 4 pm today and tomorrow from 11 to 4 pm. Come and join us.
If you can’t make the Exhibition why not join us in the Oral History Project and tell us your stories. We would love to have them, especially the second world war. Stories from the Land Girls etc.
