Women in Westminster: The 100 2024 list is revealed!

2 min read Partner content

It is an incredible honour to return, once again, for the fifth iteration of The House magazine’s Women in Westminster.

The 100 celebrates the remarkable achievements of women who have been leading the way in politics and public services over the past year. In this edition, we recognise women from across Parliament, journalism, the Civil Service, public affairs, and campaigners, whose achievements are much more than just their jobs. Women from all backgrounds have achieved immense change as a result of their tireless advocacy, innovation and leadership, and it is a privilege to showcase their accomplishments as well as the breadth of talent within Westminster.

While women in Westminster still face a number of hurdles, it is with great pride that I reflect on the strides and successes of women since the start of this campaign and I am delighted this year to see more women chairing select committees than ever before.

I would like to thank my fellow Patrons, not only for their continued support of Women in Westminster, but also for assisting in the very challenging task of narrowing down the long and illustrious list of women who lead, influence, and inspire into just 100. We were delighted to welcome a few new faces to the Patron panel this year: Baroness Benjamin; Jess Bowie, co-editor of Civil Service World; Francis Elliott, editor of The House; Emily Miles, chief executive of the Food Standards Agency; Katie Perrior, founder and chair of iNHouse Communications; Carolyn Quinn, former presenter of The Westminster Hour; and Laura Silver, editor for PoliticsHome.

We were once again struck by the sheer number of exceptional women paving the way, so this year, alongside The 100, we have put six individuals In the Spotlight. These women are figureheads within their fields, with outstanding contributions deserving of recognition.

I hope this year’s list offers a glimpse into some of the many inspiring women working within Westminster, and that their accomplishments serve as a source of encouragement for women considering careers in politics and public service in the years to come.
