Women in Westminster: The 100 2023 list is revealed

2 min read

It is a tremendous privilege to be back this year for The House magazine's fourth instalment of Women in Westminster: The 100; celebrating the outstanding achievements of women around Westminster, who have demonstrated over the past year that they are not only influential in their own field but have the talent and platform to inspire the next generation to make a difference.

This year, you will notice that we have also included a number of women who work behind the scenes, whose achievements may often go unnoticed. As a long-standing campaigner for gender equality, I am delighted to showcase the accomplishments and provide further recognition to the remarkable women represented in this edition.

In a year where our country has appointed its third female Prime Minister and celebrated the 70 years of our late Queen’s reign, there has been much for women in public life to be proud of. In truth though, women in, and around, Westminster still face a number of challenges and their contributions and accomplishments often remain overlooked.

I would like to thank my fellow Patrons for their continuing support of Women in Westminster: The 100, and welcome the government’s Chief People Officer, Fiona Ryland, who joined us this year. As in previous years, we had the unenviable job of narrowing down a long list, from a wide range of nominations, of civil servants, journalists, lobbyists, parliamentarians, and policy makers, who lead, influence, and deliver positive change across the spectrum of Westminster.

We are also delighted to once again showcase our Ones to Watch; individuals who we believe will be future figure heads within Westminster. I believe this year’s list will serve as a source of inspiration and encouragement for women and girls everywhere. It is my hope that it will help to raise the visibility of women across public life and encourage more women to pursue careers in politics and public service.

So, I invite you to view the list and be inspired, as I have been, by the work of these extraordinary women. Let us celebrate their achievements and let us continue to work together to create a world in which women have the opportunity to lead and to thrive.
