Add your name to pledge to support actions that will deliver a #GenderEqualParliament
We want to see a #GenderEqualParliament by 2028
We are calling on political parties to take action now to ensure women are selected and elected in seats they can win at the next election.
We want to see manifesto commitments that will lead to greater diversity and more women being elected.
We are calling on political parties, candidates, MPs, councillors, voters and others to show their support by signing up to our pledge.
Women are 51% of the population but currently account for only 35% of MPs. In fact, there have only ever been 563 female MPs – all together they wouldn’t even fill the House of Commons Chamber.
We are calling on political parties, candidates and others to sign up to our pledge to support actions that will deliver a #GenderEqualParliament by 2028.
