    By Jo Swinson

    One in three women will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. More women are killed or incapacitated by violence against them than by cancer. Every week, two women in England in Wales are killed by a current or former partner.

    Faced with these facts it seems almost impossible to imagine the mountain we need to climb to end violence against women. We need to take bold action now to tackle this crisis. This International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, I'm proud to set out the Liberal Democrat plan to protect women from violence.

    No one should live in fear of harassment or physical violence.

    Trans Awareness Week is a time dedicated to celebrating trans and gender non-conforming people.

    It is also an important opportunity. We must bring attention to the continued injustices and inequalities faced by trans people today

    The week will culminate in the Trans Day of Remembrance. This is a day to honour those who have either been killed or have taken their own lives as a result of transphobia. As we pause to we remember the lives lost, we are reminded that transphobia is never funny or trivial. It can be fatal.

    As you will know, our Party has long been recognised as the UK's lead Party of Remain.

    Recently we have been working with the independent "Unite to Remain" campaign to maximise the number of Remain MPs elected in this snap General Election.

    Unite to Remain is made up of the 3 parties committed unequivocally to the cause of Remain: The Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Greens. It's really disappointing that Labour would not step up too, but they are simply not a Party of Remain.

    The Liberal Democrats are delighted to announce that Antoinette Sandbach has joined the party.

    Antoinette, who is the MP for Eddisbury in Cheshire, will contest her seat as the Liberal Democrat candidate in the coming General Election.

    She is the eighth addition to the Liberal Democrat parliamentary party in the last few months and the second here in the North West.

    Liberal Democrat MP Antoinette Sandbach said:

    "This general election will be the most important in my lifetime. People have a very clear choice, the Conservative party offers years of uncertainty whilst the Liberal Democrats will stop Brexit.

    "I'm so proud to stand alongside other Liberal Democrat candidates across the country to fight for a brighter future with Jo Swinson, our candidate to be Prime Minister.

    "I will stand on my strong local record, helping to secure local investment, fighting for fair funding for our schools and to secure additional funding in local health services.

    "Our country deserves so much better than Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn. I can't wait to get to work, win this election and then deliver for my constituents and our country."

    Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson said:

    "I am delighted to welcome Antoinette to the Liberal Democrats. She is a passionate campaigner, and will be a fantastic candidate at the General Election and a great addition to our party. Her defection clearly shows that the Liberal Democrats are the strongest party of Remain and attracting support from right across the political spectrum.

    "Antoinette is one of the millions of people who are tired of the two old parties, led by people who will take our country backwards, not forwards. It is only the Liberal Democrats that will stop Brexit and build the brighter future that our country deserves."

    The Early Parliamentary Election Bill has just passed the Commons. It's full steam ahead for an election on the 12th December.

    It's likely to be the most important General Election in our lifetimes. And the Liberal Democrats are going into it as the only party that will stop Brexit on day 1.

    We're ready for this. We have an ambitious plan for the future of our country, where every single person and community can thrive. But we need your help if we're going to win - and here's how you can make that happen.
