The Observer newspaper today carries a preview story of our forthcoming report ‘Sex and Power 2013: Who runs Britain?’  

The report will be published tomorrow (Monday 25th February) and will be available on this website from midnight tonight.

Among other things, the report finds:

  • Britain is falling down the global league tables when it comes to women’s access to power and representation in politics
  • Continued ‘drift’ is inevitable without real, committed and targetted action
  • Political parties should take steps to ensure an increase in the number of women candidates fielded in winnable seats at all levels of politics
