Company Description

At Elect Her we believe that the world will be a better place when more women are in power. Equal representation of those creating the laws is essential. We will continue with our work until at least 51% of elected representatives across all spheres of office in Britain are women.
There is a lack of equal representation in Government and we’re intent on changing this.
