Positive steps taken to increase the number of women in politics

The release of postcards encouraging women to sign up for a role in Parliament - or as a councillor - is a positive step forward in getting more women in Parliament and more women involved in politics.

It is a huge pleasure of mine to support the ‘Women2Win’ campaign, and I am very proud of their achievements so far; these postcards promote the parliament project. If you are interested you can also google women 2 win and get involved. Their website is here:
The postcards allow anyone to recommend a woman to a role in politics, with the options of Councillor, MSP, MP. There are also instructions on how to proceed, asking women to sign up to ‘The Parliament Project’.

The postcards are a simple and effective way to encourage women to get involved in parliamentary politics.
