Whether that is to vote, to campaign or to stand for election, women must be there making the decisions.</p><p>Over the course of 2018, the Centenary Fund supported nearly 320 small and large projects. Many of them are ongoing and designed to encourage participation by offering women across the country information and training to take part in civic society at all levels. For example, on 21 November 2018, the Campaign group 50:50 Parliament’s #AskHerToStand event asked MPs to mentor women from their constituency for the day.</p> more like this

A substantive response to the Committee’s 2018 Inquiry on these points will be provided once there is a restored Executive in Northern Ireland to consider and prepare a response, as appropriate. In the meantime, the Minister for Women and Equalities has recently written to the Chair of the Select Committee on Women &amp; Equalities with suggestions for more immediate actions that the Select Committee may wish to consider as they finalise their inquiry report on this issue, and she will place a copy in the Libraries of the House.</p>
