Inspiring Lib Dem Women: Daisy Benson

On this International Women’s Day, we are celebrating some inspiring Lib Dem Women.

PPC for Yeovil Daisy Benson’s infectious liberalism and energy has led her to be one of the driving forces behind the Lib Dem Newbies group on Facebook.

As a councillor in Reading, she was the executive member for housing  and social care.

She was one of the most successful early social media campaigners, recognising that it’s not just a  broadcast platform but a space for dialogue.

This week she’s been featured on the Daily Politics. Watch below:

    A significant improvement on her predecessor.

    If it wasn’t for Daisy I wouldn’t be a member of the Lib Dems or as active as I am now. Funny what living a few doors away, going for a pint and having a membership form pushed over the table at you can do 🙂
