Women and Equalities: Topical Questions (13 Sep 2018)

Dawn Butler: We welcome the fact that upskirting has been made into a specific sexual offence.

When will the Government close this loophole in law...

Equal Franchise Act 1928 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (5 Jul 2018)

Dawn Butler: How amazing would it be to walk around different parts of London and the country, and see statues of women, and learn about their history, and know that we have made that happen?

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Intimate Sexual Images: Distribution (28 Jun 2018)
