The new Conservative women MPs – selected on merit, slaying the big beasts

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.
