Women2Win is a broad cross section of men and women from across the Conservative Party who came together in a recognition that the Party constantly needs to change in order to win the trust and confidence of the British People.
Women2Win has done a tremendous amount since 2005 – supporting David Cameron’s commitment to select more women to fight winnable seats, and elect more Conservative women to Parliament. Women2Win intends to continue wholeheartedly in sourcing and helping more women of high calibre into government until the Conservative Party fairly represents women.
In 2005 there were just 17 Conservative women MPs representing just 9% of the parliamentary party, now after 10 years and two elections there are 68 Conservative women MPs which is over 20%. Women2win aims to continue increasing the number of Conservative women MPs by providing support, advice and training to women who wish to enter Parliament or get more involved in politics.
Women2Win is campaigning to promote more of the brightest and best women the party has to offer and further convince Conservative associations of the benefits of putting their trust in female candidates.
Women2Win believes that when the gender balance of candidates reflects that of modern Britain, the Conservative Party’s electoral support substantially increases – by making a concerted effort to bring about gender equality, the electorate will recognise the positive efforts being made and this will be reflected in their vote.
It has been 40 years since a woman became leader of the Conservative Party, and went on to run the country. In the past year the green benches of Westminster have been filled by far more women than ever before – but Women2Win recognises that this is not yet enough if we’re going to keep pace the change in Britain.
We agree with David Cameron when he says that more needs to be done in reference to the lack of female representation in Parliament. That is why we are determined to help him continue to make that change a reality.
Britain needs a modern and rejuvenated Conservative Party, made up of the most talented and able women and men the Party has to offer – because of this the Conservative Party needs Women2Win.
