star this property answer text <p>There are more women in Parliament than ever before – 208-won seats in the 2017 election. Women now make up 32% of all MPs - up from 22% in 2010. While we cannot be complacent, the percentage of women MPs elected has increased at every general election since 2001, so the direction is positive.</p><p>The Government Equalities Office (GEO) has commissioned qualitative research with women and men in Parliament, to demonstrate the range of experiences, career paths and skills that Members bring to their role, and to understand the information and opportunities that enabled MPs to stand as Parliamentary candidates so that we can identify the factors involved in their success. We will publish this work in 2018.</p><p>The GEO supports a range of projects through the £5m suffrage centenary fund, which encourage more women to participate in politics so that they have an equal voice in democracy. The fund will help build a legacy for the future while also celebrating the many inspiring people who campaigned for women’s suffrage.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Further to my previous answer on 2 July 2018, I can confirm that this year the Government Equalities Office has been funding several projects, through the Government’s £5m Suffrage Centenary Fund, that help deliver our aim to increase women’s participation in politics across the country. Some of these projects are providing practical training to women who want an active role in politics. For example, we are supporting a political leadership programme for women in Bradford and Birmingham, and a project training women in the East Midlands, West Midlands and London in public speaking and media relations. <strong><em> </em></strong></p><p>Also, in July this year the Centenary Fund supported an Ask Her to Stand event in London where 350 women interested in elected office heard from women politicians across the political spectrum encouraging them to stand, engaged with women’s political organisations and took part in workshops providing practical advice on getting into politics and public life.</p>
