Help us Count Women In


Across the UK decisions of are being made in national and local government without women round the table.

At the current rate of change, a child born today will be drawing her pension before she has an equal voice in the government of her country. We can do better than that.

We’re aiming for 50/50 gender representation at all levels of national, local and devolved government.


► We need your support.

Together we can make sure women have an equal say in the decisions which affect all of our lives.
