What does it mean to be a powerful woman today?

The British Library will be marking International Women's Day by inviting three inspirational female speakers from the fields of law, business and politics, to discuss what it means to be a woman with influence.

Gina Miller is best-known as the political campaigner who brought the legal case that challenged the British government about its authority to implement Brexit without first seeking the approval of Parliament.

Rachel Reeves is a member of Parliament who has written a biography about Alice Bacon, the first woman to represent Leeds in the House of Commons. Her new book is all about the history of female MPs.

Helena Kennedy is one of the UK's leading barristers and an expert in human rights law, civil liberties and constitutional issues.

Now it just sits on the side of the E… continued”

Craig’s review of Downing Street There are two kinds of people who stand outside Downing Street when the air is minus-5 (it's freezing cold this morning!): the curious and the furious. The curious are tourists. The furious are home grown. The cold must be keeping everyone away today because there's only one… continued
Craig’s review of House of Lords Given a choice between visiting the House of Commons and the House of Lords I'll always choose the Lords, because the decorations are better. But if you're a tourist then I definitely recommend the Commons -- because that's where you'll see today's politicians. The Lords is… continued
Craig’s review of Parliament Square Parliament Square is full of metal fences and scaffolding today -- it's looks like they're trying to spruce it up a bit. It's the same with the surrounding buildings: the Houses of Parliament are covered in a mesh of poles and Big Ben is disappearing behind a rapidly rising… continued
Craig’s review of House of Commons Apparently the best things in life are free. That's what they say, anyway (the people with money). But in this case it happens to be true: because you can come to the Houses of Parliament and sit in the House of Commons for nothing. You don't even need a ticket or any ID. An… continued
