Guy Opperman MP and Baroness Anne Jenkin write for ConservativeHome.
There are now 68 female MPs in the Conservative Party in the House of Commons, up from 49 in 2010. All were selected, and then won their seats, on merit. Women2Win (W2W) was set up ten years ago, when we had just 17 female MPs, to help encourage, support and mentor Conservative women into the House of Commons.
Women2Win is delighted with the General Election which has resulted in 27 new Conservative women MPs. This means there are now 68 Conservative women MPs which is an increase of over 40% on 2010.
All women finals on merit are now happening regularly with fantastic female Conservative candidates being chosen more and more.
On Friday the 24th of October Women2Win were delighted to host, with Conservative Women’s Organisation, an informal reception on the subject of “Women in Politics and Women in the Economy” with The Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Rt Hon George Osborne MP
Victoria Borwick, Local Councillor in Kensington and Chelsea, Elected member of the GLA and The Deputy Mayor of London to Boris on her experience in politics.
