About Us

Green Party Women is an affiliate group of the Green Party of England and Wales.

Our aim is to help women to do green politics better.  Networking, training and help with funding to attend Conference, or other events, where lack of childcare or transport costs are a barrier.

The Green Party is growing.  We have a member of Parliament, Caroline Lucas, two members of the House of Lords, Jenny Jones and Natalie Bennett and two members of the London Assembly, Sian Berry and Caroline Russell.

In addition, we have hundreds of Councillors in District and Unitary Authorities and Parish Councils.

The Green Party are proudly feminist, and unlike other major political parties in the UK, the majority of our leading politicians are women. We have rules ensuring gender balance within our leadership (including for our Welsh Party), our regional and Parliamentary candidates, and for the chairs of our regional council and Young Greens.
