Watch: Corbyn on 100 years of votes for women

Jeremy Corbyn today published a new video to mark the centenary of some women over 30 gaining the right to vote.

Corbyn and Tony Benn installed a plaque in the cupboard – in defiance of Commons rules – which is well worth having a look at when visiting Parliament.
