Getting Selected: Free Public Event to Examine the Changing Role of Women in Parliament

https---cdn.evbuc.com-images-37154740-91207638361-1-original

In 1918, following the passing of the Parliament (Qualification of Women) Act women were allowed to stand for Parliament for the first time. In 1921 the Lincolnshire constituency of Louth elected Margaret Wintringham as their MP, and she was the second woman ever in the House of Commons.

‘Getting Selected’ will be a lively roundtable discussion chaired by Professor Krista Cowman from the University of Lincoln, and will consider how the process of being selected as Parliamentary candidate has changed since Margaret Wintringham was elected in the 1920s. Participants will include Lesley Abdela, co-founder of The 300 Group, an all-party campaign for women in parliament, politics and public life; Sarah Childs, Professor of Politics and Gender at Birkbeck, University of London; playwright Hannah Davies; local MP and former City Councillor Karen Lee; Dolly Theis from the 50:50 Parliament and #AskHerToStand campaign; and Nicola Waterworth from The Parliament Project, which empowers women to run for political office.

MP for Lincoln Karen Lee said “Next year marks 100 years of the Acts of Parliament which gave women the vote and allowed them to stand as MPs. I am delighted to take part in this event, which will celebrate these key milestones and examine their impact on our democracy past and present.”
