 New stretch target


Inequality is deepening, services are crumbling and politics is failing us. It doesn't have to be this way

This election WE are demanding that politicians dare to raise their ambitions. Because we can’t have a brighter future until we can imagine it.

Over the last 14 years the Conservatives have underfunded our services and driven policies that mean a third of children are living in poverty. Women are facing crises on all fronts, from the changing climate to broken services to escalating violence against us. Once again women, and particularly minoritised women, are being asked to pay the price for the failures of our political leaders and none of the old parties are offering answers.

We can and must demand better. 

Your donation will enable us to take the fight to the old parties, and demand that they raise their ambitions for women in Wales.

Building a caring, sustainable economy 

We must look further than just GDP, after all who is that growth benefiting when we still can’t pay our energy bills or access care when we need it? Creating change here means structuring our economy so it delivers us health and happiness, as well as wealth.

Investing in care and ending poverty could transform and rebalance our economy by creating wealth and jobs, truly valuing the work that women do. 

How would we do it?

  • Invest in care by introducing Universal Free Childcare and a National Social Care system which is free at the point of use.
  • End child poverty by increasing child benefit, putting an immediate stop to the harmful two-child benefit cap and increasing carer’s allowance.
  • Build climate positive communities by expanding accessible public transport and  introduce a national programme of insulation and green energy retrofitting for homes.
  • Reimagine work by protecting flexible working and the right to work from home, shortening the work week, expanding carers leave and improving sick pay provision. 

This investment would deliver huge returns for us all, easing the immense pressure on the NHS, generating wealth, creating jobs in caring sectors easing pressure on women delivering unpaid care.

It is simply not true that we can’t afford to fix the services we all rely on. In fact, we can’t afford not to. We need political leaders who are brave enough to move away from the policies that have driven a cycle of underinvestment and failing growth. 

Our candidates in Wales

Hanna Andersen (Mid & South Pembrokeshire) and Nancy Cole (Caerfyrddin)

Nancy is Co-Leader of the Women’s Equality Party in Wales and a champion for women’s rights and local climate action. She lives in Laugharne where she set up and runs a local mother, baby and toddler group. Nancy is concerned about the future of our communities and the intersections between inequality and climate change. She’s involved in the Laugharne Citizen Science project monitoring river water quality levels and with the Plastic Free Laugharne group. She works as an outdoor learning practitioner across Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire and as Head of Development for a learning and wellbeing charity.

Nancy is standing in this election because she wants better for her local area and believes the people of Carmarthenshire deserve a bold vision for their future.

Hanna is Co-Leader of the Women’s Equality Party in Wales alongside Nancy, and has led campaigns on abortion access in Wales, ending sexual harassment in schools, and misogyny and racism in policing. Having lived in Wales for most of her life, Hanna is a strong supporter of devolution and improving the lives of people in Wales - who are disproportionately living in poverty. She currently works part-time at the Women’s Equality Party and will shortly begin a PhD in Social Policy.

Hanna is standing in this election because she is tired of the lack of ambition shown by the old parties. She’s ready to imagine a better future for the people of Wales.

The legal bit...

As we're a political party we're required to run permissibility checks on donations over £50. These will be completed as you make your donation and therefore we can't accept anonymous donations.

If you give over £500 your name will appear in our election returns on the Electoral Commission website.
