Congratulations to our 2017 women candidates

We are proud of the strength and breadth of the 2017 Women Candidates list.

The number and quality of female prospective parliamentary candidates standing in 2017 are a testament in part to the concerted efforts within the party to the improve diversity of our approved and selected candidates. Mostly, however, it demonstrates the power and strength of liberal democratic women around the UK in coming forward to stand for the party and what they believe in. It signals great things still to come from this 2017 cohort, both for this election and for the party more generally.

The #LevelUpLibDems intiative is encouraging volunteers to make time to support target seats, but by providing the full list of female candidates we want to recognise their contribution which is also crucial. The liberal democrats offer the best opportunity for good government and fair society. Only by building our presence and activities up in seats across the board will we have the chance to offer that opportunity nationally to provide robust opposition and governance. Seat development is vital; it gives people a choice to vote with their liberal principles and it gives us a chance to work in seats to make them winnable. Every woman on this list is key in driving forward their seat not just up to the 8th of June, but to 2022 and beyond.

Congratulations to them all, and we look forward to working alongside you in the next weeks, months and years.

Flo Clucas, Alice Thomas, Candy Piercy, Julia Cambridge and Kat Bavage
