Equal Power is a ground-breaking campaign to transform women’s representation, and get more women elected as MPs and Councillors and being active citizens in their communities.   

The three-year project is run by a coalition of organisations including The Fawcett Society, Centenary Action Group, ElectHer, 50:50 Parliament, Glitch and Muslim Women's Network UK, to get more women in all of our diversity into politics at every level.

Together, we will offer extensive training on standing for election and active citizenship, peer support circles and be tracking women’s journey’s to office. We will also be campaigning to tear down the barriers that keep women out of politics and public life.  

In this challenging political climate only 32% of our MPs and 35% of local councillors in England are women. Women who are BAME, disabled, working class, young or with caring responsibilities are substantially underrepresented. This is not good enough and women’s voices must be heard.
