Snap general election offers opportunities for women

24 Apr, 2017
The general election to be held on 8 June offers the UK parliament the opportunity to achieve a significant increase in the representation of women. Currently at just on 30%, it could rise to 35% or even higher, depending on the number of women parties select in winnable seats. CFWD will be monitoring this, and will publish information on both candidates and the new MPs after polling day.
