This March, the House of Commons and House of Lords will be celebrating Women’s History Month.

There are many influential women throughout history who have impacted UK laws and equal rights and it is right to champion their achievements during this Women’s History Month.
It takes each and every one of us to make the UK a fair place to live where we all have access to opportunities to move forward together.

As the first female Member of Parliament elected to represent Aldridge-Brownhills I have been both fortunate and privileged to serve as a Minister within Government and take on the role to serve as the first ever Conservative Chief Whip.

As the Houses of Parliament look back through history and celebrate Women’s History Month I firmly believe it is important to acknowledge that everybody should have equal opportunities to effect change and that we should celebrate the benefits that a truly wide and diverse range of voices can achieve. Throughout the centuries many strong women have stepped up to fight inequality and break down barriers for future generation and during the month of March we honour these women.
