Join us to get 117 more women into Parliament at the next election
50:50 Parliament wants men and women to run our country and plan the future in roughly equal numbers.
Let’s build a better democracy, together!
50:50 is a cross-party campaign aiming to encourage, inspire and support political engagement. Currently of the 650 seats in the House of Commons men hold 442 (68%) and women only 208 (32%).
To address the overwhelming gender imbalance in Parliament, we encourage everyone to ask talented and inspirational women to stand as Parliamentary candidates.
To become an MP you need to contact a party. Get in touch with the #AskHerToStand contact for your party.
They organise training and mentoring programmes for prospective parliamentary candidates.
