Women of Westminster

Hosted by the LSE Library

Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, United Kingdom


Rachel Reeves MP

Professor Nicola Lacey


Professor David Soskice

Rachel Reeves MP speaks on her new book Women of Westminster: The MPs who Changed Politics. The stories of so many women MPs have too often been overlooked in political histories. In this book, Rachel Reeves brings many forgotten MPs out of the shadows and looks at the many battles fought by the Women of Westminster, from 1919 to 2019.

Professor Nicola Lacey will respond to Rachel’s talk and the book at the end of the talk.

There will be a chance to buy a signed copy of the book after the event.
