This day next year (21st November) will mark 100 years since the Parliament (Qualification of Women) Act 1918 permitted in law that “a woman shall not be disqualified by sex or marriage for being elected to, or sitting or voting as, a Member of the Commons House of Parliament”.

With more than 200 women being elected into Parliament in June (a historic high number of female MPs in the House of Commons) and Gender Pay Gap Reporting due in April, the next year is set to be a historic one. Let's see if Hammond makes reference to it tomorrow!
