Winning with Women: Is there still a women’s vote?

September 23, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

Winning with Women: Is there still a women’s vote?
7.30-8.45pm, Tuesday 23 September 2014
Lancashire Room, Peter House, Oxford Street, Manchester, M1 5AN

Alison McGovern MP Shadow minister for international development
Diane Abbott MP Hackney North and Stoke Newington
Jenny McAllister National president, Australian Labour party
Jane Merrick Political editor, Independent on Sunday
Chair: Lee Sherriff Parliamentary candidate for Carlisle

The event looked at the role that women voters will play in the electoral coalition that Labour needs to win in 2015. Is there still a distinct women’s vote that the party should be targeting? If so, how? If not, why has this changed?

Winning with Women, as part of the Campaign for a Labour Majority, is a Progress initiative to bring together people from across the Labour movement to improve women’s political representation, and discuss the role that women in the party and the electorate will play in winning Labour a majority in 2015. Progress is committed to a bigger, more diverse Labour party and wants to reflect this in how we work, who writes for us and who gets involved.
