In this briefing you will find:

  • Evidence that the Fawcett Society submitted to the Women and Equalities Committee's Inquiry into women’s representation in the House of Commons
  • Statistics, including the finding that 37% of seats at-risk in the Boundary Review are held by women, which is substantially more than the percentage of women in Parliament – only 29.6%
  • Projections on the state of women in Parliament, including the concern that without intervention from the major parties, women’s representation is at serious risk of reversing in 2020
