House Work is centred on the inequality between male/female Members of Parliament in Great Britain, and each constituency has been meticulously hand stitched to visually show that imbalance.  The border details some of the legislation resulting from bills introduced by backbench women MPs.  The labels highlight other related issues pertaining to women in politics.
