The Women's Equality Party urgently needs your support to ensure MPs who commit harassment or assault can no longer represent you.

New stretch target

Our campaign is having a big impact. Thanks to the work of the Women’s Equality Party, and the courage of survivors and activists, four MPs accused of harassment or violence have stepped down - Mark Field, Kelvin Hopkins, Charlie Elphicke and Jared O'Mara. But there is still more to do. We urgently need your support to continue to remove MPs accused of harassment.

No other party is anywhere near ambitious enough when it comes to ending violence and harassment. Only the Women’s Equality Party is demanding the radical action we need to create a society where women can live free from fear.


Stand with us against violence

The Women's Equality Party general election candidates - Eljai Morais, Gemma Evans and Serena Laidley - are all survivors of violence. They are standing to remove MPs facing unresolved allegations of harassment or assault. We urgently need your support to end abuse. Starting with Westminster. 

In the last two years over 20 MPs have been accused of violence or harassment. Not one of them has lost their job. 

Parliament has failed to hold MPs to account for their actions. So we need your help to hold them to account at the ballot box.

We are challenging the abuse of power in Westminster

Harassment and sexual assault are always about the abuse of power. This is true in households, workplaces, and communities up and down the country. 

It fuels escalating rates of violence against women. Harassment in Westminster is no exception. 

Violence is not inevitable

Each year, around 85,000 women are the victims of rape. The number who report to the police is higher than ever. But convictions are at all all time low, with only 3% ending in a conviction.

Domestic abuse killings are at a five year high. Two women die every week at the hands of their partners or ex-partners.

Women across the country are living in fear as the violence against them escalates. 

Those who escape their abusers leave to find that the support services they desperately need have been stripped away due to lack of funding.

With your help, we will end violence starting in Westminster

We will build a society where women are free from fear

The MPs we are targeting have been accused of assault or harassment, some on multiple occasions. None have been subject to an independent investigation. 

Over the last two years they have continued to operate as MPs, voting to make our laws - including on whether their own cases should be subject to an independent process.

The Women’s Equality Party are calling for

  • a stronger independent process
  • full suspension for MPs undergoing investigation
  • recall for MPs found guilty of violence and harassment

Abuse and harassment have no place in Parliament. We need your urgent support to ensure that they are not re-elected and to force Parliament to take action. 

This is bigger than party politics 

Where the other remain parties agree to adopt these policies, our candidates will stand down and we will work collaboratively to end violence.  

Our activists will be out in force to deliver our message and to ensure these men are held accountable.
