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.
