In an exclusive New Statesman event, Helen Lewis talked to Labour MP Jess Phillips about her new book ‘Everywoman: One Woman’s Truth About Speaking the Truth’.
Jess Phillips was elected to the seat of Birmingham, Yardley in 2015. Since entering Parliament, she has quickly gained a reputation for directness, and a distinct disinterest in minced words. Her book is a memoir, a personal account of being a woman in Westminster.
Helen Lewis is Deputy Editor of the New Statesman magazine and a regular political commentator, contributing to Radio 4's Week in Westminster and BBC1's Sunday Politics, amongst others.
