Getting Selected – a landmark for women’s rights

  • University of Lincoln Lincoln (map)

We are delighted to be part of the 'Getting Selected'  roundtable discussion chaired by Professor Krista Cowman from the University of Lincoln which will consider how the process of being selected as Parliamentary candidate has changed since Margaret Wintringham was elected in the 1920s.  Participants include Lesley Abdela, co-founder of The 300 Group, an all-party campaign for women in parliament, politics and public life; Sarah Childs, Professor of Politics and Gender at Birkbeck, University of London; playwright Hannah Davies; local MP and former city councillor Karen Lee; Dolly Theis from the 50:50 Parliament and #AskHerToStand campaign; and Nicola Waterworth from The Parliament Project which empowers women to run for political office.
