50:50 Parliament's mission is to build a better democracy, one in which women have equal seats and equal say.
50:50 work with all the political parties to encourage women to stand for elected office at local and national level. When women click #SignUpToStand via www.5050Parliament.co.uk/signuptostand we:
- send them an interactive Personal Political Profile
- allocate them a 50:50 Buddy
- invite them to weekly party specific Bite Size meetings
- and offer bespoke support to women from diverse groups.
In the corridors of power, men still outnumber women by 2:1. Campaign for change!
