Why should you join WLD?

Because women still do not have an equal voice in Parliament, in our local Councils, nor in the Liberal Democrat Party itself. We are changing this by:

  • Organising seminars, fringe meetings, workshops and training sessions
  • Encouraging women to become and remain active members of the party
  • Supporting women candidates at national and local level
  • Putting forward Policy Motions to Conference
  • Working with CGB so that women have a bigger voice within the party
  • Campaigning on issues which affect women's lives
