Description

Elected to parliament in 2015, aged 20, for Paisley and Renfrewshire South, the Baby of the House has a first class honours degree in Politics and Public Policy from the University of Glasgow. Principled and passionate, she is a long-standing critic of Westminster, which she describes as 'an old boys' club, excluded from reality, with a culture of sexism and arrogance. A tireless campaigner against everyday sexual harassment and misogynistic online abuse, she was the first MP to use the C-word in parliament. She is a proud Partick Thistle fan.
