Women for Election has empowered women to go into government - at local and national level. Much done, more to do.

As a young women entering the political field I found the one day course to be extremely inspirational. Not only did the day provide me with the confidence I needed to enter the political field but it also gave me all the tools and knowledge I would need in order to succeed. The day itself offered a forum to network with other women with similar interests. The best attribute of 'Women for Election' is that they genuinely wanted you to succeed and will guide and assist you in any way they can. The day left me with the feeling that being a politician could be a reality not just a dream.

I have always been interested in politics and after attending Women for Election's INSPIRE event in July I have increased my practical knowledge, gained a support network and achieved clarity with regards to what I want to achieve in the world of politics. Women for Election has exceeded all of my expectations.
