The Parliament Project

The Parliament Project is a non-partisan project to inspire, empower and encourage women to run for political office in the UK. Focusing on practical, hands-on training and support, we run workshops and webinars to demystify the process for women wanting to get involved in politics and online peer support circles to support women's political ambitions more deeply. Active across England and Scotland, nearly 3000 women have attended our workshops in the last 2 years. We are creating a groundswell of women entering political parties to ultimately achieve 51% female representation in all spheres of politics.

Scotland’s Women Stand

On Saturday 7th September we’re gathering 400 women for a dynamic day at the Scottish Parliament, to explore their paths to elected office and participation in democracy. We invite women of all ages, backgrounds and political affiliations, to a day full of inspiration, information and motivation, to explore their political purpose and path, and be a part of positive change towards the goal of gender equal political representation.

We are thrilled to be working on Scotland’s Women Stand with our friends at YWCA Scotland, funded by the Scottish Government and in partnership with the Scottish Parliament,

We are grateful to be funded by:
