Feisty politician Jess Phillips will be talking about how she uses her platform as a Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley to shout about the things she cares about.
She has discovered that speaking the truth isn't always easy — she's been called everything from a murderer to a feminazi witch — but she believes that if we dare to believe we can make a difference, then we can.
