Lib Dems Too set up

A new Tumblr site, Lib Dems Too, has been set up to share accounts of sexism and worse within the Liberal Democrats and useful links for taking action.

It describes its purpose as follows:
Sexism in UK politics is nothing new to those of us involved in it. Following the #metoo discussion and the Westminster allegations, we created this website inspired by the Everyday Sexism Project to detail some of the instances of sexism within our party and to help people find the support they may need. 
Too many brilliant people are driven out of politics through no fault of their own, and we are poorer for it. We must put an end to it now. 
This website is run by volunteers who are members of the party.

"A guy was drunk and tried to kiss me"; "Some old men didn't listen to a woman speak once"; "I was so drunk I can't remember if I slept with someone or not"; "An older man once awkwardly complemented me".

Really traumatising stuff there....
