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.
I’m delighted that The House magazine’s Women in Westminster: The 100 is back for a third year; and we continue to recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of women over the past twelve months in public life, by recognising one hundred women who have inspired in their sector in the world of Westminster. You can view this year's list now at www.womeninwestminster.co.uk.
