We are a Cross-Party Campaign and Petition

Our vision is a parliament where men & women legislate the laws of our land, together, in roughly equal numbers. Of the 650 seats in the House of Commons men hold 458 (70%) and women only 192 (30%). There have only ever been 450 women MPs.

So there are still more men in the Commons right now than there have ever been women MPs.
