Our hearts go out to the family of Jo Cox MP

50:50 Parliament is devastated at the tragic loss of Jo Cox MP. She was a wonderful woman full of wisdom and compassion serving her community and country. She was a bright star that made Parliament a better place. We need more like her.

Our hearts go out to her family at this sad time.

In Westminster all things are not equal: fewer than 3 out of 10 MPs & Peers are women

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 459 (71%) and women only 191 (29%). 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.
