    26th November 1867: Lily Maxwell becomes the first woman to vote in a British parliamentary election.

    She voted for Liberal candidate Jacob Bright, who was pro- women's suffrage, in a by-election for the Manchester constituency. Lily had been put on the registers by mistake, but her vote was not crucial as Bright secured a majority of around 2,000 - gaining the seat from the Conservatives.

    Disability History Month is an important opportunity to remember how far we have come in the battle for disability rights and equality writes Lib Dem Party President Mark Pack.

    There is still a long road ahead to ensure equality and inclusion for disabled people.

    It is also a time to honour those who have led the way forward, defied stereotypes and contributed so much to the success of our country.

    With coronavirus putting the most vulnerable in our communities at risk, we must ensure no one is left behind writes Layla Moran MP.

    2020 has seen a sharp rise in rough sleeping. Without a home to stay in, these people are at a higher risk of catching the virus and have no way to self-isolate.

    The homelessness crisis is not new, and is not going away once we defeat Covid.

    Article: Nov 13, 2020

    This week culminates in the Trans Day of Remembrance - a day set aside to remember the lives lost as a result of transphobia and anti-trans violence.

    Globally, trans rights are eroding and rates of suicide and self harm in the community are alarming. Far too many live in constant fear of physical violence and persecution. This is unacceptable.
