Women power

Women power

With Gerry Adams resigning from his role in Sinn Fein, all ruling parties in the UK are now led by women.

Northern Ireland - Mary Lou McDonald for Sinn Fein and Arlene Foster for DUP
Scotland - Nicola Strugeon for SNP
Wales - Leanne Wood for Plaid Cymru
England/UK - our very own TM for the Conservtive Party.

A wonderful coincidence in the year that represents 100 years since women (not all, but some!) first got the vote in this country.
