Dr. Cat’s Special Invitation to The House Of Lords in London, UK!! She was thrilled to have had a very special breakfast at the UK House of Lords, also known as the House of Peers. It is the upper house of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Like the House of Commons, it meets in the Palace of Westminster. Officially, the full name of the house is “The Right Honourable the Lords Spiritual and Temporal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled.”
The Queen’s speech is delivered in the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament. In addition to its role as the upper house, until the establishment of the Supreme Court in 2009, the House of Lords, through the Law Lords, acted as the final court of appeal in the United Kingdom’s judicial system.
While at the House of Lords, Dr. Cat witness the official launch and book reading of the newly published Disrupt 3.0, a book on the inspirational lives and successes of the awardees of the Filipina Women’s Network.
It was all so lovely. I was so moved by the stories of hardships and triumphs of the authors who read their chapters at the event. I am so grateful to have been hosted at House of Lords and to be part of this ever so historic moment for the FWN Organization.” – says, Dr.Cat.
