Equal representation for women

1 Comment 10th May 2015

While we are considering reforming the voting system, why don't we make sure that women are equally represented?  This could be done by electing one man and one woman for each constituency.  It would mean that constituencies would have to be larger, but it's the only way that women will get equality in Parliament – we are really not making any progress worth mentioning.  I expect someone will comment that we can't do that for every group in society – true, but I'm not proposing that.  Whilst someone can be black and a man or women, a smoker and a man or woman, etc, as far as I know you can't be registered as a man and a woman at the same time.  Minority groups are fairly represented in Parliament already. Women form more than half of our population, but they are not properly represented in Parliament.  Women do think differently from men and approach life in a different way.  Their experience of life is totally different from men and yet we only have a few women MPs.  This should apply to all elected bodies.

Why does this matter?

Very little progress has been made in having women fairly represented in our so called democratic system. Women should have equal representation with men.

One Response to Equal representation for women

    Stupid idea this makes no since. a woman will be represented by the person whom her constituency votes for… we are not selfish and they represent all constituents not just those of their gender or party.
    I like how sexist you are by calling it equal representation of women rather than equal representation of gender……. IF YOU REALLY WANTED TO YOU COULD HAVE ONE MP REPRESENTING THE FEMALE ONE FOR THE MALE. BECUASE THE FEMALES MIGHT PREFER THE MALE CANDIDATE TO THEIR OWN AND MALES PREFER THE FEMALE CANDIATE

    WILL WE HAVE A THIRD MP FOR TRANSGENDERS AS WELL.. ILL TELL YOU THERE ARENT ENOUGH OF THEM TO RUN FOR EACH CINSTUTUENCY
