Women in Politics

resham_kotecha_women_in_parliament.pngResham has spent the last five years as a member of the Women2Win team, initially as a coordinator before becoming the COO and now serve as the Deputy-Chair. 

resham_kotecha_more_women_in_parliament.jpgWomen2Win was co-founded in 2005 by Baroness Anne Jenkin and The Rt. Honourable Theresa May, MP and leads the campaign to elect more Conservative women MPs to Parliament. In 2005 there were just 17 Conservative women MPs representing just 9% of the parliamentary party. Now after 12 years and two elections there are 70 Conservative MPs. Women2Win aims to further increase the number of Conservative women MPs by providing training, mentoring, support and advice to women who want to enter parliament or get more involved in politics. Women2Win is supported by a large network of men and women across the Conservative party who give their time and provide valuable support to help build the next generation of Conservative women MPs.In the lead up to the 2015 General Election, Resham organised and ran training sessions for over 70 female candidates - personally training some of the 2015 intake of MPs.

resham_kotecha_5050_campaign.jpgResham also worked with the team to organise fundraisers raising tens of thousands of pounds which enabled Women2Win to make financial contributions to every single female candidate in the election and to support them with public speaking and media training.

In addition to her work with Women2Win, Resham speaks at schools and Universities around the country to encourage other women to stand for Parliament. If you'd like Resham to speak at an event, please get in touch.
