Democracy Loves Diversity is the latest event in Make Votes Matter’s Democracy Loves series, designed to showcase how we can use PR to build a better society. In this event, we will highlight how parliaments elected by PR look more like the people they represent. Legislatures elected under proportional systems have a better gender balance, are more ethnically diverse, and are younger, than their equivalents under First Past the Post.

Speaking about this further will be our cross-party panel, representing a broad intersection of British politics:
Shaista Aziz, Labour Party councillor for Oxford City Council, journalist and comedian.
Dr Hannah Barham-Brown, Deputy Leader of the Women’s Equality Party.
Hina Bokhari, Liberal Democrat Member of the London Assembly.
Dr Maria Iacovou (chair), Professor in Quantitative Sociology at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge
Femi Oluwole, Political commentator
Amelia Womack, Deputy Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales

The event will start at 7pm, and have time for an audience Q&A
