Today, the Government and I announced that they officially back my campaign and our bill to make upskirting a sexual offence. ?? When I launched this campaign everyone except my lawyer, Ryan (pictured here! ? ) and my family and friends said that the Government wouldn’t back this. They said I couldn’t do that. Well, today, they officially backed it. And not only do they back it, but minister Lucy Frazer is so passionately behind it and thinks the legislation we put forward is the right solution. ?✔️ With Theresa May speaking on the gap in PMQs and mass MPs from across every single party supporting us, it is official: the Government are going to make sure the gap in the law is closed. ?❌? Today is the second reading of our bill, so there’s still work to do, but, in the words of the Spice Girls ‘all I really, really really want is ziga-zig-ah’. I think that speaks to how Ryan and I are feeling right now. ???♥️

Yesterday, on the way to Parliament I was wearing this ~delicious~ shirt, jeans and heels. ???Before I stepped out my front door I put my headphones in and put music on because I knew I’d get comments. ?? I’m tall, and for some reason, as soon as I wear heels I catcalled big time. Oh the joys. I mean, I could wear a ski suit, but if I was wearing heels: ‘HEY DARLIN’ *whistles* etc. ?? But hey guess what, don’t stop wearing what you want because of idiots. ?✊? Just have some good responses. ‘I’d rather set fire to my own vagina’ usually works. ??
