What is Learn with the Lords: Question Time? 

Learn with the Lords: Question Time is an online engagement event for students aged 14 to 18, to mark Women’s History Month.  

We will be joined by Senior Parliamentary Archivist, Mari Takayanagi, who will share a brief history of women in the House of Lords. Using real parliamentary artefacts, Mari will reflect on the vital contributions that women, past and present, have made to the work of the House.   

We will then be joined by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, multi medal winning paralympic athlete and member of the House of Lords since 2010.  

Baroness Grey-Thompson will share her experiences as a woman in politics,  sport, and the media, by answering questions.
