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%).

#AskHerToStand

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.
