The UK’s general election last week was decisive. It marked a significant win for the Conservatives, a straight-forward path for Brexit, and a resounding denunciation of the Labour party’s leader, Jeremy Corbyn.
Lost in the post-election commotion however, was another decisive statement: parliament now has a historic number of women, ethnic minorities, and LGBTQ members.
The new parliament has 63 non-white members, up from 52 at dissolution; 220 women, an increase of nine; and 49 who are openly LGBTQ, two more than last time.
