  • Women Driving Political Change

Sunday, 16 February 2014

It seems politics and democracy of a gender balance is all about political point scoring and visbility these days, yet I cannot deny it looks uncomfortable to watch as it is to read. Here a few articles worth digesting; Conservatives are in the spotlight on the lack of female representation on the front benches. The thought of a united front helps counteract party and public concerns. However more is required despite concerted efforts from Conservative campaigns and movements such as Women2Win to reflect women effectively within Parliament.

Many female Conservative prospective parliamentary candidates may appear on the official approved candidates list however few make it to the bitter end fighting in winnable and retiring seats, the strong minded, resilient few will see the success in 2015.

Gaby Hinsliff quoted in the Guardian, Tory women were 'piled like sandbags' couldn't have been more clearer;
