Ask an inspirational woman to represent our local area!

December 17, 2020 6:36 PM

Inspiring person

Buckinghamshire Council is meant to be representative of our local area, but out of 194 Councillors only 46 are women. This is less than one quarter of all serving councillors.

As Liberal Democrats, we agree that a gender balanced Council would be more representative and better for all. Studies have shown that women are half as likely than men to consider themselves potential candidates for elected office and that they need to be asked three times before they will consider standing.

This is why as a local party we need your help in asking inspirational, talented women to stand for Council. A little nudge from you might make all the difference and then we can then support them along the way. So, let us build a better democracy together!

What am I signing them up for?

If they are interested in standing and reach out to us, the local Lib Dem team will then contact her to talk about being a candidate with all the relevant information.
