    The suffragettes were fighting for women's rights over 100 years ago.

    They recognised that women's representation, having a voice, and having a vote were the keys to women's rights and gender equality.

    And in those one hundred years we've come a huge way in advancing women's rights.

    The Liberal Democrats are proud to have played a role in this fight. In coalition, the Liberal Democrats brought in shared parental leave and required all large employers to report their gender pay gap. And last year, Wera Hobhouse's fantastic backbench bill made upskirting a specific criminal offense, and gave women the tools to report it as a crime.

    Our three-yearly round of internal party elections gets underway when nominations open this Thursday (12 September), ahead of the party conference at Bournemouth - which is traditionally the opportunity to gather signatures on nominations. (A new online nomination process is also being trialled, alongside the old-fashioned paper method).

    To summarise:

    Last night, the Government posted its assessment papers of the impact a no-deal Brexit will have on our country. And it makes for pretty grim reading.

    A no-deal Brexit could bring civil unrest, traffic chaos that stretches for miles and fuel and medicine shortages. And that might not even be the worst of it. But for now, here's 7 things on the Yellowhammer document the Government is hoping you'll miss:

    I have never witnessed a Parliamentary session quite like last night.

    The government shut down Parliament, against the wishes of the Speaker and the opposition parties.

    The people have never needed the voices of their MPs more.

    And at this crucial moment, Boris Johnson has silenced us.

    Over the summer, we won two big by-elections, in Brecon and Radnorshire and Shetland. This weel, Jane Dodds took up her seat in Westminster and Beatrice Wishart in Holyrood.

    And over this week, three more MPs have joined us.

    Phillip Lee, MP for Bracknell, who joins us from the Conservatives; Luciana Berger, MP for Liverpool Wavertree, former Labour and Change UK MP, who joins us having sat as an independent; and Angela Smith, MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge former Labour and Change UK MP, who also joins us having sat as an independent.

    Over the past few years, I have been on a political journey triggered by an increasing sense of disenchantment with the Labour Party.

    It appeared to me that Labour, a party which I had effectively been born into and supported all my life, was increasingly distancing itself from the national interest by putting its own priorities first.

    The Liberal Democrats stand ready to do everything we can to prevent not only a No Deal Brexit.

    We are leaving no option off the table when it comes to preventing the UK crashing out of the E.U.

    As I outlined in my letter to Jeremy Corbyn below, my door is open to any Parliamentarians who wish to work together to prevent a disastrous No Deal. Equally, we are eager to work with any Parliamentarians who seek to stop Brexit itself, because there is no version of Brexit that will leave our country better off.

    Twitter plays an important part in modern political discourse. It's often the medium through which news breaks (or leaks).

    On Twitter, there are 3 main ways we interact with a tweet.

    • Liking the tweet
    • Replying to the tweet
    • Retweeting, or retweeting a tweet with a comment

    Beyond this, the twitter algorithm doesn't differentiate between interactions.

    Along with so many friends, colleagues and supporters, I find myself in the fight of a lifetime. Our democracy is under threat. A Prime Minister who behaves increasingly like an autocrat is trying to push through a no deal Brexit against the will of Parliament and the people.

    I'm thrilled to have been elected as the Liberal Democrats' Deputy Leader by my parliamentary colleagues.

    It's a really exciting time to be taking up the role. In the last few months, we've gained:

    Millions of people up and down our country are tired of disastrous two-party politics.
