Victoria Prentis wants everyone to celebrate with a cup of tea

North Oxfordshire MP Victoria Prentis has invited everyone in her constituency for a cuppa.

The slightly left-field offer is part of a national EqualiTeas campaign to share, debate and celebrate what equality means over a cup of tea.

The tea party marks the centenary of some women getting the vote and 90 years since men and women over 21 gained the right to vote.

Mrs Prentis has called on everyone to meet with friends and family to stage an event between June 18 and July 2 to celebrate the ‘democratic milestone’.

She said: “These anniversaries are an incredibly important opportunity for us to reflect on how far we have come. We all know there is still more to do when it comes to equality in Britain, and EqualiTeas is an excellent opportunity to reach out to others in our community and share our ideas for an even more equal society. I hope that groups across north Oxfordshire will get behind this exciting initiative.”

Historically, tea parties were hotbeds of political activism. It was one of the few ways women could meet without men to discuss and plan.
