Women in Westminster: The 100

The House's annual celebration of the most inspirational and influential women in Westminster is back for a second year.

There are more incredibly talented women from across politics and public service than ever before; from parliamentarians, to journalists, civil servants, and activists. To celebrate International Women’s Day, our WIW Patrons have identified 100 of the most inspiring women in public life. The full list can be viewed below.

Congratulations to everyone who has made this list. I hope this campaign goes from strength to strength.”
— Elizabeth Truss, Minister for Women and Equalities

We are delighted to be supporting ‘Women in Westminster: the 100’ once again. This is an opportunity to recognise women who are at the top of their game and who are making sure strong female voices are being heard in the corridors of power. They are also role models for the next generation of female leaders and by showcasing their achievements, we can help those young women fulfil their potential too.

The Inaugural 100
In March 2020 we were delighted to reveal our inaugural Women in Westminster: The 100 list.

– All information correct at date of publishing 9 March 2020.

To be on the inaugural list is a dream I never imagined. It feels as if one is recognised, and that’s special.”
