December 2019 was a record-breaking month in Parliament – the General Election had seen the highest number of women ever elected to Parliament.
But that milestone, while important, was 220 – only around a third of all MPs elected. Since then the number has risen to 225. So, while a success it’s still short of where it should be.
Women in Westminster: The 100 celebrates the achievements and the valuable role women play in public life by recognising one hundred women from across the world of Westminster, who are not only influential in their own field, but who possess the talent and platform to inspire the next generation to make a difference in Westminster and beyond.
You can view the full The 100 and Ones to Watch lists at www.womeninwestminster.co.uk or read our publication here.
Women in Westminster: In Conversation With aims to showcase The 100 and Ones to Watch with a series of interviews looking at who they are, their achievements and their experiences.
The House magazine would like to thank Lloyds Banking Group for their kind support of Women in Westminster.
