Equal Power is a ground-breaking campaign to transform women’s representation, and get more women elected as MPs and councillors across England, as well as leading change in their local communities.
This three-year project is led by The Fawcett Society in partnership with Centenary Action Group, Muslim Women’s Network, The Parliament Project, Glitch, Citizens UK and 50:50 Parliament. Together, we are offering free online training on standing for election and active citizenship, as well as building peer support circles and tracking women’s journeys to office. We’ll be inviting women to campaign with us and help to tear down the barriers that keep women out of politics and public life.
We particularly want to centre BAME women, disabled women, working class women, younger women & those with caring responsibilities, all of whom are under-represented in national and local politics.
This summer, because of coronavirus we’re running a programme of FREE online training for women on community organising and leadership, getting into politics and using your voice online. This programme includes sessions specifically for women who are Black, Asian or part of a minority ethnicity.
You don't need any existing knowledge or experience.
Take part to be inspired and gain the skills and knowledge to get more politically active. We welcome women from across the political parties.
