If a dinner lady from Swansea can make changes, anyone can.
Carolyn Harris MP has been a dinner lady and a barmaid. Nowadays – she’s an MP who’s been doing INCREDIBLE work as the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Menopause. If you’re getting HRT on prescription in England, it’s thanks to Carolyn that you’re going to be able to pay for your prescription yearly.That means you’re going to save a lot of money.
Carolyn breaks a LOT of the stereotypes of what you might expect an MP to be like. She’s happy to have a good swear with the Effin Hormones gang; she dyes her hair all kinds of different colours – and most importantly she gets things done, with cross party support.
She’s as far away from a career politician as you can possibly imagine, but as she says, she’s not doing anything that other people can’t do. The Effin gang get inspired to keep on raising awareness and influencing government policy. Hopefully you’ll feel inspired too.
