Women and Girls Manifesto 2019
This general election offers an opportunity for all political parties to explicitly support equality for women. Women’s lives have changed significantly in the last 50 years but there is still lots of work to do.
The Women and Girls Manifesto is a guide that you can use to inform conversations you have with candidates at hustings and on the doorstep.
Politicians must listen to young women
Young Women's Trust CEO Sophie Walker, is calling on parliamentary candidates to make time to meet with young women and listen to their concerns:
“Young women need to register and then get out and vote on 12 December. They need to use this crucial election to make sure their voices are heard. Young Women’s Trust stands ready to help politicians to engage with young women.”
