We’ve also set up a women’s campaign election microsite with other women’s organisations.

The other ten organisations involved are: Southall Black Sisters, 50:50 Parliament, the Fawcett Society, Girlguiding UK, Maternity Action, Rape Crisis England and Wales, Rosa, the Young Women’s Trust, the End Violence Against Women Coalition, and the Women’s Resource Centre.
