Let's Build a Better Democracy Together!
In Parliament men outnumber women 2:1.
50:50 want women to have equal seats and equal say in running the country. We want the best of both, men and women, planning the future together.
December 2019 marks the centenary of the very first woman taking a seat in the Commons. Since then over 5000 MPs have been elected but fewer than 500 have been women - so the fight for political equality continues.
On 4th December 50:50 will invite women from across the country to Parliament to celebrate and take action.

This is what Nandy Manley-Browne said about the day:
I was very inspired by the guest speakers and fringe workshops on the day and formed some great connections as a result of my attendance. I left feeling encouraged and empowered to continue persevering with my vision, and thankfully the opportunities arose when they did.
She went on to be elected as a councillor.
50:50 want to inspire and support more women to take the next step along the path to Parliament. Please donate to support our campaign to help women along the way to Westminster!
