The Women's Equality Party was formed in March 2015 when Manchester born journalist and writer Catherine Mayer, speaking at the Women of the World conference invited anyone interested in forming a feminist political party to 'come and see me in the bar'. WEP are now a driving force for change with over 30,000 members. The party has core objectives: equal representation, equal pay, equality in and through the media, equal education, equal health, shared opportunities in parenting and caregiving and an end to violence against women. The party won its first seat in local elections May 2019. Manchester Branch fundraise to create more opportunities for women to be present on ballot papers across Greater Manchester. We are a friendly lot, we love a challenge, we campaign on a shoestring, we're grafters and we have a lot of fun while we do politics differently. Come to the fun part and see!
