After meeting our Chair at the Party in the Park 2015, MP for Hackney South & Shoreditch Meg Hillier came to talk at one of our meetings about what its like to be an MP and a woman in parliament. More recently a few of us met her again on a tour of the Houses of Parliament. It was such a privilege to meet her there one evening and see what goes on behind the scenes in the beautiful Palace of Westminster.
To say thank you we took some of our Made in De Beauvoir goodies to Meg’s surgery for her to share with her staff:
