Political parties are responsible for their candidate selection and should lead the way in improving women’s representation. Many are already doing so.</p><p>The Government’s Suffrage Centenary Fund is supporting a number of projects that aim to increase women’s participation in politics, and earlier this year we announced funding for disabled candidates to meet the costs of campaigning, primarily for the forthcoming English local elections in 2019.</p> more like this
