Welcome to the Stone CLP
We are part of the nationwide network of Women’s forums within the Labour Party. Our local group was founded in 2017 and since then we’ve had a lot of fun, new friendships have been formed and we’ve learnt a lot along the way!
What we’ve achieved so far:
Why have a women’s group?
- To give women a voice and build confidence in a supportive setting
- With too few women MPs and elected officials at every level,
politics has never been more important. We aim to recruit more women to the party and support those who wish to stand as officers/ councillors
- While progress has been made, women still face discrimination in all walks of life. We aim to raise awareness of inequalities and campaign on contemporary issues such as sexual harassment, the continuing gender pay gap and state pension inequality (WASPI)
- We champion the views of women in the constituency, listening and acting on what matters.
