I've been involved with Women2Win since 2012, working to get more women elected to public life and to Parliament.
As part of its work, Women2Win supports every female candidate that stands - and I was delighted to be asked to speak alongside Anne at a fundraiser, to tell guests about the impact Women2Win has had on my efforts to stand for Parliament and become an MP.
We have some incredible women standing for Parliament at this GE - and many will go on to become MPs.
If you'd like to help, please get in touch - this could be through campaigning, mentoring candidates, hosting a fundraiser, donating money to a hardworking candidate, or helping us scout for the next generation of female candidates.
I want a meritocracy - where the best person is chosen - and believe this would lead to a more diverse and representative Parliament.
