Mill increased? his eminence - and notoriety - by promoting women s suffrage, proportional ?and working-class representation, Irish land reform, racial justice, and the radicalization generally of the Liberal Party. His parliamentary role was enhanced by ?the pivotal nature of this parliament, which saw the growing polarization of politics between the new Liberal party and the Conservatives, following the death of ?Lord Palmerston.
